An auction of attention-grabbing lots is gearing up for it's final weeks online before the hammer comes down.

Russell Baker, Lord of the Manor of Little Moulton, of Bracon Ash, near Wymondham, who has organised the auction in aid of East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH) is hoping the event will raise in the region of £10,000.

He said: 'Existing lots including a Pandora silver crowning glory bracelet, James Morrison gig tickets, BeWILDerwood tickets and a short break at Potters Leisure Resort with evening entertainment by Peter Andre, many sporting memorabilia and events have gained widespread interest with many bids already being placed on said items. Recent additions to the auction include a money-can't-buy tour of Norfolk Constabulary which takes you to the central control room and forensic examination, as well as custody. You'll even get to meet the police dogs. Former F1 racing driver Jarno Trulli has also kindly donated an autographed bottle of wine from his own vine yard in Italy and not forgetting the Luxury Villa Holidays at Kololi Beach Gambia.'

Laura Shearing, EACH Norfolk Fundraiser, said: 'We need to raise £5.75m a year to continue our vital services. 'This equates to £15,000 a day so Russell and the community's fundraising efforts really will make a difference to the care and support we're able to deliver.'
