Bid to raise funds for Hampton based char­ity

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A HAMPTON based char­ity will give res­i­dents the chance to get hold of ex­clu­sive con­cert tick­ets, jew­ellery and mu­sic mer­chan­dise as part of an auc­tion.

Deaf­blind UK, based in Cygnet Park, Hampton, Peter­bor­ough, will hold the auc­tion via eBay dur­ing Deaf­blind Aware­ness Week be­tween June 21 and 27.

Among the lots up for grabs are four tick­ets to see Cirque Du Soleil at Wem­b­ley Arena next month, a signed Northamp­ton Saints rugby shirt and a pair of tick­ets to see JLS per­form at the Peter­bor­ough Em­bank­ment on July 18.

There are also a se­lec­tion of CDs and DVDs from acts in­clud­ing Madonna and Linkin Park, as well as spe­cially de­signed pieces of jew­ellery on of­fer.

The char­ity is also run­ning a World Cup sweep­stake and has in­vited busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions from across the city to get in­volved, with the win­ner re­ceiv­ing a life-size replica of the World Cup tro­phy.

Deaf­blind UK’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Jeff Skipp will pre­side over the draw on June 9.

At ran­dom, 32 balls will be drawn, each rep­re­sent­ing a coun­try tak­ing part in this year’s tour­na­ment, which in turn will be al­lo­cated to com­pa­nies and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

The money raised will help the char­ity of­fer sup­port and as­sis­tance for peo­ple with sight and hear­ing prob­lems across the city and through­out the rest of the coun­try.
