A children’s charity is set to benefit from an online auction that ends this weekend.

The auction for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) and The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation includes more than 100 “money can’t buy” lots. More than £20,000 has so far been raised.

Some of the popular lots include VIP tickets to the FIFA Ballon d’Or Awards in Zurich, Norwich City Football Club VIP experience, two tickets to the UEFA Champions League final, a tour of the McLaren Technology Centre, and two VIP tickets to the final day of the World Snooker Championships.

Bidding closes at 8pm on Sunday.

Fundraiser Gina Long said: “We are indebted to the generosity of all those who have so kindly supported our special auction where 100% of the money raised goes to the two charities. Words can’t express just how grateful we are for all the fantastic lots we’ve received. Football fans are spoilt for choice with this auction – from rubbing shoulders with the world’s greatest footballers on the red carpet at the FIFA Ballon d’Or Awards in Zurich, to meeting Harry Redknapp at QPR and Loftus Road directors box tickets – there really are some fabulous once in a life time opportunities to be had.”
