The auction has been organised by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) special events committee.

It is chaired by veteran fundraiser Gina Long, who said: “I’m so pleased EACH and The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation will both benefit from what I’m sure will be a super online auction this October.

“We have many fabulous items and experiences to suit all budgets and I would encourage everyone to keep an eye on the EACH auction page on thesaleroom.com.
