A charity that trains assistance dogs is auctioning tickets to two big summer concerts.

Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, based in South Witham, is offering tickets to the annual music events at Burghley House.

This year is a double-header, with Status Quo on Saturday, June 6, and a 1980s greatest hits night featuring Bananarama, Toyah and Midge Ure on Sunday, June 7.

The charity is offering a pair of tickets for each night separately to the highest bidder. People can submit their bids until Friday, May 22.

Fundraising support manager Debbie Blyth said: “Hearing dogs are trained to alert deaf people to important sounds such as the alarm clock and smoke alarm, and also provide life-changing confidence and independence. All funds raised from the sale of the tickets will help the charity to train more dogs to transform the lives of deaf people across the UK.”

To bid, e-mail fundraising@hearingdogs.org.uk with either Status Quo or 1980s Greatest Hits in the subject line, and their bid in the body of the message.
