North Lopham pub the King’s Head has handed over more than £2,000 after a charity event

An auction at a pub raised more than £2,000 after being strongly supported by bids and donations from the local community.

The King’s Head in North Lopham hosted the event which included items such as a pamper hamper, football tickets for any Ipswich or Norwich game and a tour of Woodford Brewery, in December.

Money raised on the night was split between East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and the East Anglian Air Ambulance, with both charities receiving just over £1,000.

The cheques were handed over at the King's Head.

Louise Griffiths, who runs the pub with her husband, Martin, said interest in the returning event had been particularly pleasing.

“The auction has always been a success, and we were delighted with the response this year,” she said.

“We are committed to supporting local charities. This year, we will help charities each month with money raised from a football card fundraiser, which costs £1 per square.

“We give £20 to the winner and £20 to the charity. This will help 12 charities throughout the year, while our fete will return in September, too.”
