An auction in aid of a charity that helps find new homes for animals will take place in Emneth this Bank Holiday.

Bidders can win goods such as paintings, tools and trinkets when they go under the hammer from a £1.

The event at Emneth Central Hall is aid of small local charity PAW (Promoting Animal Welfare).

Dawn Sammons, who runs the charity, said: "We fund our work through accepting donations of bric-a-brac and other unwanted goods and selling on market stalls and boot fairs.

"My husband and son run a boarding kennels in Nordelph and I am an animal warden for a local authority, so we often hear about animals in need of new homes or other help.
