These are just some of the quirky lots on offer at a fund raising auction being staged by ADeC later this month.

TV auctioneer David Palmer - known for his natty waistcoats on programmes such as Flog It! and Cash in the Attic - will be wielding his gavel at the event held at The Maltings in Ely.

The auction takes place during a night of award-winning and nominated short films, on Sunday November 17, starting at 8pm.

There are more than 30 items on offer, from pulling your own pint (plus a round of drinks for you and your friends) at Ely’s micro-pub the Liberty Belle, a pair of cinema tickets every month for a year, and the chance to be your chance to be a weather girl or boy on Star Radio.

Caroline Cawley from ADeC said: “We’ve had some impressive donations from local businesses and individuals, including some great artwork. The full auction catalogue is now online, so even if you can’t make the event, you can still put in a bid.
