DO you fancy a helicopter ride, a day with the fire service or lunch with the Cambridge United team?

These are just a selection of the 40 lots billed for a charity auction to be held in Soham on Saturday.

Local auctioneer David Palmer is putting the lots under the hammer on the day. He has also managed to wangle a month's free milk delivery out of Soham Town Council chairman-come-dairyman Chris Palmer.

All proceeds from the auction, which will take place in The Pavilion alongside the Soham Beer Festival, will go to the Windmill Playgroup whose home is at Soham Methodist Church.
