PRIZES from top football clubs are up for grabs in a silent auction organised by Calderdale Royal Hospital.

The auction is to raise funds for the children ward’s bravery scheme, which will also be boosted next month by a charity ball.

Nemanja Vidic, captain of the newly-crowned Premiership champions Manchester United, signed a shirt for the auction and Liverpool FC also donated a tour of Anfield and their club museum as prizes.

The bravery scheme helps children cope with painful and unpleasant hospital procedures by collecting stars to receive special gifts.

Hospital play assistant Danielle Brook said: “The bravery scheme really helps children when they come into hospital and have to undergo what can sometimes be painful procedures.

“We would love as many people to buy tickets for the ball or place bids for the auction so we can ensure the scheme continues.”

Bidders must submit their highest bid by phone or email before June 2 to Danielle Brook or Charlotte Wilson on 07825 554859 or charlotte.l.wilson@live.co.uk

The highest sum then wins the shirt.

The winner will be contacted on Monday June 6.
