Dr Bagshaw has a great affinity for members of the Armed Forces and has been a keen support of Help for Heroes since it was formed in 2007.

At this very early state of preparation, he is keen to attract offers of raffle prizes – such as gift tokens, vouchers, wine, chocolates, toiletries and plants.

Any cash gifts will be used to purchase prizes.

Tickets will go on sale nearer to the event, which will be held at Hurworth Grange on Saturday, June 28, at 7pm.
