All, Thanks to some fantastic blagging by arrsers and their supporters, the auction team has a range of lots which will be suitable for a wedding. For example a family photo session, a cake, a frock, a hair/makeup session, and other lovely items.

We'll be auctioning them all together during July.

So if you or someone you know is planning a wedding (no cynics please - its' something everyone should try once!), watch this space for a series of items which will make it go with a swing whilst helping our favourite cause.

Anything you can offer, which someone would buy at auction, would be very very welcome. I'll post a list of what we have already, and see if you can think of anything else!

You'd have to pay a lot of money to Hols For Heroes for that particular priviledge.

As yet, no partridge in a pear tree, but I expect it imminently.

There's so much here, I think we'll run it for two weeks, probably starting on 5th or 12th July.
