Invercargill Streaker Auctions Socks For Charity reports that the male streaker who ran nude in sub-zero temperatures at an Invercargill rugby match recently has auctioned off his socks for charity.

A pair of socks worn by the nude pitch invader was auctioned on the Trade Me website last month with the funds supposedly going to the Winton Volunteer Fire Brigade.

When the auction closed it was being led with a bid of $50 by the Beige Brigade, the semi-formal group of cricket supporters who have repopularised the fawn and brown uniforms of the 1980s New Zealand one-day team.

The fire chief says he hadn’t heard about the auction.
