A boxing glove signed and authenticated by Amir Khan is one of 50 items to be auctioned at Shuttleworth College, Old Warden Park, in aid of Keech Cottage Children's Hospice in Luton.

The 22 (Sandy) Squadron Air Cadets came up with the idea after seeing a presentation and decided to do more to raise funds for the hospice, which cares for babies and children with life limiting illnesses from birth to 18-years-old. Other items are a signed pen from Prime Minister Tony Blair, a signed Red Arrows print, champagne, a signed Renault Cap by Fernando Alonso, a winch glider trial, tickets to Kensington Palace and the Royal Dress Collection and a gas barbecue.

Squadron commanding officer Flt Lt. Margaret Bell said: "The Cadets have worked really hard on this project, and there is something for everyone to bid for, admission is free and auction lot programmes are £1.

"All proceeds will go to Keech Cottage, so I hope everyone will support the cadets and Keech Cottage and join us for a fun packed evening."

The Auctioneer for the event on Friday, October 6, is John Pilgrim from BBC Three Counties Radio.
