A 3/4 of a tonne dinosaur is being auctioned off  in order to raise funds for JDRF, a charity that funds research into finding a cure for people with type I diabetes.<br />
The 15 ft tall (4.6mtrs) fibreglass Allosaurus has been part of the exhibition at Dan Yr Ogof, The National Showcaves Centre for Wales, for some years.<br />
The idea for the auction came from Ashford Price, chairman of the National Show Caves for Wales at Dan yr Ogof, whose son and grandson both live with type 1 diabetes. Ashford said: “Diabetes is a difficult medical condition even for adults, but for young children it is so much harder.<br />
“Some young children have six insulin injections every day just to stay alive. Can you imagine the parents’ anguish having to put a child through this daily ritual?<br />
The dinosaur measures 24ft long (7.3mtrs) and its 8ft (2.4mtrs) at its widest point <br />
The dinosaur is being auctioned to the highest bidder in order to raise funds for JDRF, a charity that funds research into finding a cure for people with type I diabetes.<br />
To put in a bid email the charity at wales@jdrf.org.uk by the 26th of February.
