A charity auction will raise funds for Relate counselling sessions for young people at Luton’s TOKKO youth space.

Currently, 70 young people are waiting for confidential Relate counselling at TOKKO.

Relate is holding its networking and charity auction event at the UK Centre for Carnival Arts on Monday June 8.

The event is at 6pm and the auction begins at 6.45pm, with plenty of low-cost items on offer, such as cinema tickets, bus passes and meals for two, as well as more costly items.

Lot number 27 is a meal for two at Luton’s new American-style restaurant Ed’s Diner, when it opens in June.

Auctioneer Russell Beard, of auctioneers Charles Ross, will be encouraging bids for the chance to learn the skills of an auctioneer.

There will be a chance to have a go on a climbing wall. Money raised from this will go towards paying for extra equipment at the TOKKO youth space, so the climbing wall can be adapted for use by disabled young people.
