The Mayor of Saffron Walden, Councillor Richard Porch, is holding a prize draw in aid of his chosen charities. The prize ticket will not be drawn until 5th February 2022 so the tickets would make a great gift to slip inside a Christmas card! This would almost equate to a charitable donation – the tickets are £10 each and the monies raised will be split between three Open Door counselling service for young people, Uttlesford Clothing Bank and Uttlesford Foodbank.

The prize is unique – a sculpted bust of yourself or of a person of your choice, value £6000. The bust will be created by award-winning sculptor and conceptual artist Ian Wolter, whose work “The Children of Calais” is displayed in Dorset House Garden, Church Street/Church Path, Saffron Walden CB10 1JW.

Tickets can be purchased in person at Saffron Walden Tourist Information Centre
