POLAR explorer Michael McGrath has extended the deadline to Saturday for his online charity auction in aid of muscular dystrophy.

Mr McGrath, 41, co-founder of the Muscular Help Foundation (MHF), launched the auction to provide sufferers of the muscle-wasting disease with memorable experiences.

Lots people can bid for include breakfast with GMTV presenter Lorraine Kelly, and two ring-side boxing tickets from promoter Frank Warren.

Mr McGrath said: "We want to announce one or more children's Muscle Dreams in time for Christmas."

So far, the charity has raised £3,725, but it aims to raise £10,000.
