Tea for two with Norman Lamb boosts Stalham charity auction

An auction of celebrity memorabilia has raised nearly �2,000.

The auction organised by Elizabeth FitzRoy Support and held at St Mary's Church in Stalham on Bank Holiday Monday, raised a total of �1,973.64.

Lots on offer included a signed Norwich City football, tickets to see the channel four show Countdown being recorded and a range of books, photos and collectables signed by host of celebrities.

Elizabeth FitzRoy Support's marketing manager, Chula Bishop, said: 'The lot which raised the most was tea for two on the terrace of the House of Commons with north Norfolk MP Norman Lamb - that raised �150, followed by a bottle of House of Commons wine signed by Nick Clegg, which raised �110. It was a very successful auction and we are really pleased.'

The funds raised from the auction will go to help the tenants of Allen Meale Way, Elizabeth FitzRoy Support's supported living service in Stalham, helping with the construction of an extension to the lounge as space is currently very limited, due to many of the tenants using wheelchairs and specially made furniture.

The charity sale was run by Horners the Auctioneers, who are based in Acle.
