Mayor of Saffron Walden Cllr Heather Asker is giving away a new Ibanez jazz guitar in a charity raffle, with extra equipment now added to the prize.

The Ibanez Artcore guitar was donated anonymously, and a local band has since donated an amp, a tuner and a bag of guitar picks.


Raffle tickets are £1 each and available from Neon, Vinyl and Arts, run by Mark Starte. Opening hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 5pm.

The anonymous donor asked that tickets are sold at a low cost, to include young people who may be unable to afford a guitar.

Money raised will go towards the mayor's charities: Fairycroft House Arts and Media Centre and the Saffron Walden Youth Outreach Project.
