The Jersey Christmas Appeal Charity Auction has raised £56,560.

Hundreds of goods and experiences were snapped up following days of online bidding and a live radio finale on Channel 103 on Sunday (10 December).

Star lots included a week in a villa in Barbados which sold for £3,200, a helicopter ride around Jersey (£1,100), and a signed McLaren cap which went for £600.

The total from the sale was £53,810.

An additional £2,750 was raised by 'pledge a wedge'.  It invites people to pledge £10 to be entered into a draw for a holiday.

The destination and length of the break gets better the more money is put in the pot.

This year's winners will be going to the Maldives for the holiday of a lifetime.

It brings the total for the 2023 appeal to £56,560.

That money will pay for heating, grocery and children's gift vouchers for around 1,300 people who are struggling financially this festive season.

Demand for help has risen by around a fifth this year because of the cost of living crisis.
