"People have the chance to bid for some really exciting things - either for themselves or perhaps as a present for a loved one.

"You could be whisking someone away for a luxury spa break or taking the family for a wonderful day out to some of our top regional attractions.

"Perhaps you fancy bidding for one of the lovely food hampers or some of the DIY products. The great thing is that there is something for all interests and budgets.

"I would urge everyone to bid - you never know whether yours will be the winning bid. All money raised from this auction is for charities who do such valuable and inspiring work and rely on donations to help keep them going."
