TEACHER Adrian Bramley may not be sure what he has let himself in for - but at least he knows its all in a good cause.

The head of music at Allertonshire School, Northallerton, is just one of the lots at a fundraising auction of prom-ises later this month.

He is offering to be someone's slave for a day and is willing to do anything - within reason - between the hours of 8am and 8pm, everything from gardening, cooking, decorating and even doing children's homework.

But if slave-owning is not your thing the catalogue is also offering lots of other goodies, from bottles of champagne to a cruise on a steam gondola.

The auction is due to be held at the school on November 26 from 7pm. Catalogues are available from the school on (01609) 772888.
