Harry Potter letters to be sold in charity raffle

Props from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001) are being raffled for charity.
They include two of the letters used in the film inviting Harry Potter to Hogwarts School, a T-shirt worn by one of the film crew, a hat and a poster.

The raffle is raising money for the Iain Rennie Hospice at Home, which provides free nursing care for patients in the Chiltern area of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
Other prizes include tickets for the Queen musical We Will Rock You, a DVD player and a video recorder.

The hospice's fundraising manager Steve Grudgings said: "We approached Warner Brothers and asked them for some prizes and they've sent us some amazing things.
There's been a huge amount of interest in the draw and at this rate we will have to print more tickets."

Tickets cost 1 and can be brought from the charity's South Buckinghamshire office on 01494 713888.
They are also available from High Wycombe Book Shop on 01494 465898.
