Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

Jimmy Page has donated a pair of tickets for Led Zeppelin's December 10 reunion gig at London's O2 arena to Brazilian street kids charity Task Brasil.

Page is a long-term supporter of the charity, and helped establish Rio's Casa Jimmy - one of the organisation's projects which "improve the lives and support the needs of children and pregnant teenage girls living on the streets of Brazil".

Page said: “These tickets are intended to raise awareness of and aid the fundraising activities of Task Brasil and Casa Jimmy."

As well as getting to enjoy the music, the winner of the eBay auction gets to mingle at the post-gig party.

The bidding ends at 18.44 on Monday 19 November, and currently stands at an impressive £6,600. ®
