Vana Koutsomitis is selling her Apprentice mementos to fight cyberbullying


The Apprentice finalist Vana Koutsomitis is selling off personal items from the show including a signed Bizzy Bee book to raise money for a cyberbullying charity.

The businesswoman has set up a GoFundMe page where generous donors can bag themselves the one-of-a-kind mementos after she admitted experiencing online bullying during her time on Lord Sugar's show.

Vana, who lost in the final to Joseph Valente, wrote: "While I was on the show, I experienced quite a bit of cyberbullying, so I want to join forces with an existing charity to fight that.

"I want to fight against cyberbullying  because nobody should have to endure harassment online. I would like to support victims of cyberbullying and help participate in an effort to stop online harassment from happening at all."

The DatePlay creator is offering signed postcards to everyone who makes a £10 donation and a bottle of wine from her other business, Vino by Vana, to all £50 donors.

Then the good stuff kicks in.

The first person to pledge £70 will get a signed copy of the original Bizzy Bee children's book with the accompanying "swishing and swooping" audio CD.

A donation of £75 will bag you a signed DatePlay T-shirt from the show (she doesn't state if it's the one she wore or Richard's sweaty shirt).

The first £150 donation gets you the famous watermelon scarf she wore during the final. Oh, yes.

So far, two £10 donations have been made and that scarf is still up for grabs. Get in quick!
