East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is hoping the auction will help boost their funds and support their continued work helping children with life-threatening conditions.

Among the items up for sale is a photo of one of the greatest players of all time, signed by the man himself - Brazil’s legendary number 10, Pelé.

EACH also has a photo of the iconic save pulled off by England goalkeeper Gordon Banks against the Brazil legend, signed by the heroic shot-stopper.

For big Banks fans the charity also has a yellow England goalkeeper jersey signed by the man.
