Auction fund-raiser

THERE will be an auction of promises at the YMCA theatre on Thursday, September 22.

Doors open at 6.45pm for a chance to view the lots and the auction is due to start at 7.30pm.

A spokeswoman for the event said: “David Nicholson is the auctioneer so their will be plenty fun and frolics, the YMCA choir will be singing. It is free to get in with £1 charge for the programme. All proceeds go to the YMCA.”

There are more than 40 lots which include: family days out at Flamingo land, Eden camp and Castle Howard, West End theatre tickets, hampers, meals out and a trip around The Houses of Parliament complete with lunch. The spokeswoman added: “These could make great Christmas gifts.”
