Instead, they were intently studying the brochure for 12 auction lots at our latest charity auction – including bottles of bubbly from the House of Commons donated by local MPs – which raised nearly £2,000 to help pay for free counselling services for young people in the area.

A framed photograph of the England international one-day cricket team, signed by local lad and England captain Alistair Cook as well as a host of players, attracted one of the biggest bids – £160. While a day out for five people at Center Parcs Woburn Forest attracted the top bid of £200.

Auctioneer for the event at the Auction Rooms, The Old Town Hall, Woburn, was Angela Foll, CEO, Relate Bedfordshire and Luton. “We’re grateful to so many friends and supporters who turned out to take part in our auction which raised a significant sum for what is a very worthwhile cause,” she says.

Relate Bedfordshire and Luton delivered 26% more hours of services during 2014-2015 compared with the previous year – and more than half of that time (57%) was spent supporting children and young people.
