Music fans have the chance to win a new Ibanez jazz guitar in a raffle for the mayor's chosen charities.

Mayor of Saffron Walden Cllr Heather Asker will draw the raffle on Wednesday, January 31.

Money raised will go towards Fairycroft House Arts and Media Centre and Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project.


The instrument, which was anonymously donated to the appeal, will be on display at Neon, Vinyl and Art in Emson Close, where proprietor Mark Starte will sell raffle tickets at £1 each. 

Opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

The anonymous donor asked that tickets were sold at a small cost to include young people who might be interested in playing but unable to afford a guitar.
