Appeal for help...William Brown and Amy Henderson want donations of second hand laptops to give to an orphanage in Uganda.

Friends from Pocklington have held a silent auction to raise funds for needy children in Africa and are now appealing for donations of second-hand laptops to help an orphanage that cares for the youngsters.

Amy Henderson, 30, and William Brown, 26, made about £635 from the auction for the Great Living Orphanage in Uganda. Auction forms were available to collect from Pocklington’s Chiropractic Plus, on Regent Street, and Browns The Greengrocers, on Waterloo Sqaure. There were 35 lots to bid on during the auction, with bids placed by either handing in a completed form at Chiropractic Plus or Browns or by emailing Amy.

The duo are running a fundraising drive in aid of the orphanage and have so far raised about £4,465.
