An auction of promises and collectables is being held in Ditchingham.

The Friends of All Hallows Hospital will be hosting the event on Saturday, May 13, at the village hall.

The lots will include a visit for two people to the Electric Picture Palace in Southwold, afternoon tea for two at The Assembly House in Norwich, a gold necklace, model steam engine and more.

Doors will open at 6.30pm for viewing, with the auction at 7.30pm. St Peter’s Brewery will provide a bar and there will be light refreshments. To donate an item call Pauline Evans on 01986 893563 or Pat Blakeburn on 01986 892493.

The Friends fundraise to support the community hospital in Ditchingham and over the past year they have bought a new meals on wheels van to help with the 17,000 that are delivered each month, paid for a nurse to go on a palliative care end of life course and two shower chairs.
