A SIGNED Manchester United shirt, a week's holiday in a private Spanish villa, a trip to The Gambia and a flight in a glider - these are just some of the amazing Ipswich and Suffolk Press Ball auction and raffle prizes.

Donated through the Cystic Fibrosis Trust - the Press Ball's chosen charity - the prizes are a fantastic boost to the glittering event.

Sandra Howarth, regional fundraising manager for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust in the East of England said the prizes had been donated by individuals and organisations keen to support the charity.

She said: “These are fantastic prizes and we are hugely grateful to those who have so generously supported the charity. The press ball is a brilliant event for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and not only raises much needed cash for our research but also awareness of the condition.

“We are looking forward to a fabulous night.

“Manchester United have donated a shirt signed by its entire team. To accompany the shirt the lucky winner will also have the opportunity to visit the world famous Old Trafford Stadium and enjoy a tour of the grounds and the museum.
