A CRICKET bat signed by England and Warwickshire's Ian Bell will go under the hammer at Acorns’ Coventry Support Group Annual Dinner and Dance on Friday, November 16.

It takes place at Hinckley Island Hotel in Hinckley and includes a three-course meal, live music, raffle and auction with other lots including an iPad, one week holiday in Algarve penthouse apartment, weekend break in a luxury log cabin signed Worcester Warriors’ shirt and a signed Aston Villa shirt.

Bell, a former pupil at Princethorpe School, said: "Acorns provides free care to support families of life limited children.

"This specialized care that helps them in so many ways costs £750 per child, per day, so we want to invite people to take their last chance to buy tickets now, for a great evening supporting the most vulnerable local children."

Acorns’ Coventry Support Group Martin Banbury added: "This is a fun night out for everyone.

"People from businesses across the local area will be supporting Acorns and find out how the charity supports young people and their families across Coventry and Warwickshire."

Dinner dance tickets at £35 per person can be bought by calling Mr Banbury on 07917 670737 or by emailing him martinbanbury@hotmail.com.

Tables of 10 to 12 are available with reduced rates for rooms at the hotel.
