Place your bets for Jack

IPSWICH is today being asked to place its bets, take a chance and have a flutter to help send a youngster with cancer on a dream holiday to Disneyland Paris.

BUSINESSES in Suffolk have today moved to help raise money for a five-year-old boy with cancer by donating auction lots.

Relatives of Jack Gooding Harding are organising a casino night to help fundraise for his dream holiday to Disneyland Paris.

His uncle Tim Morton has collected more than 25 auction items, including a day-pass for six people at Centre Parcs, a portable DVD player and a ride in an Aston Martin.

The casino night is at Pals Nightclub on Wednesday, March 8, and is for over 18s.

Entry is £5, payable on the door, and will include $100 of pretend cash to place bets with. Extra fun money can be bought on the night.

The auction will be silent, and people will submit written bids for the lots.
