Damien Hirst’s art for auction

Have your say

A PING pong ball designed by artist Damien Hirst, and three nights in Spain, are among the prizes at a charity auction in Sheffield this Saturday.

Tickets for the Crucible, Sheffield City Hall and Disney on Ice are also among the offerings at the Baby Basics auction at King’s Centre Church on Union Road in Nether Edge from 7.45pm.

All money raised will be used to care for vulnerable new mums – some of them teenage asylum seekers or refugees, or women trafficked into the country illegally.

Last year alone Baby Basics gave 73 Moses baskets filled with nappies, wipes, clothes and toiletries to vulnerable mums across Sheffield.

The charity also runs a weekly drop-in meeting to build new mums’ confidence and teach them skills.

Tickets for Saturday’s auction cost £3.50, or bids can be taken online at http://www.kingscentreonline.com/baby-basics-auction
