IPSWICH Town fans are being offered the chance to own Blues memorabilia and sought-after match tickets - while also supporting a charity helping vulnerable youngsters.

The Evening Star has a signed Blues home shirt, a signed football and four tickets to see Town take on East Anglian rivals Norwich City at Portman Road on April 13.

The goodies are all up for grabs - and all you have to do to get your hands on them is send in a sealed bid for any of the lots which take your fancy.

The proceeds of the auction will go to the Somebody's Daughter appeal, launched in December 2006 to offer a second chance to vulnerable young people.

The three lots were donated by Ipswich Town following the club's decision to adopt the appeal as one of its registered charities for the 2007/2008 season.

And their value is sure to rise as Jim Magilton's team make a push for promotion and a place in the Premier League.
