Author J.K. Rowling has donated a complete set of autographed Harry Potter novels to an auction that will benefit a local Scottish Rugby club. Jo donated the books for an auction that will benefit Portobello Rugby Club of Edinburgh, Scotland. The BBC reports this club was destroyed by fire when it was “burned down by vandals in May 2007…Philip Gregory, of Lyon and Turnbull, said JK Rowling had donated the books after hearing about the fire through a friend who is a member of the rugby club committee. Club president Iain Goodall said: ’ The club house has reopened but during the fire we lost everything including all our club archives. We are extremely grateful to JK Rowling for her extremely generous donation and will use the funds to replace the club’s history.’ “
