A SCHOOL is hoping to score big with a charity auction set to include tickets to see reigning premier league champions Manchester United.

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Dovercourt will be putting items donated by businesses, such as the football tickets, restaurant vouchers, flowers and Colchester Zoo tickets, under the hammer to raise cash to help the students.

Doors open at 10am on Saturday with the first lot being sold at 10.30am and the school held a similar event two years ago and raised £1100.
