HANLEY: TV auctioneer Adam Partridge is to give free valuations in return for a donation to Hanley-based Disability Solutions.
The charity, which provides advice and support to people with life limiting illnesses and the disabled community, has lost a quarter of its funding from Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
It is hoping the valuation event at the Quality Hotel, Hanley, on May 29, will boost funds so it can continue to run its advice line.
As well as free valuations from Mr Partridge, who stars in Flog It!, there will be a buffet, refreshments and a raffle at the event which runs from 7pm to 10pm.
Tickets, priced £10, are available by calling 01782 683805.
STAFFORD: Emergency medical equipment has been donated to two rugby clubs.
Engineering firm Alstom has donated defibrillators, which are used to restart the heart in cardiac arrest patients, to both St Leonard's RUFC and Stafford RUFC.
West Midlands Ambulance Service will be providing the two Stafford clubs with free training in the use of the devices and basic life support skills.
SMALLTHORNE: Defendant Jason Bennett, aged 19, of Orion Street, Smallthorne, admitted failing to comply with the requirements of a community order made on October 4 last year for two offences of assault, when he appeared at North Staffordshire Magistrates' Court.
The order was allowed to continue, but to mark the breach he was told to do 14 hours of unpaid work and pay £60 costs.
