A unique sports memorabilia auction is to be held in Market Harborough to raise money for seriously-ill Madi Brooks.

The auction includes a one-off Formula 1 race overall signed by Giancarlo Fisichella and Jenson Button; a Leicester City Premiership champions Victory Parade T-shirt and a Leicester Tigers Rugby team 2016 shirt signed by all the team.

Madi is an 11-year-old Market Harborough girl who suffers from a very rare neuro-muscular disorder.

An appeal to raise money for a new wheelchair and treats for Madi has now passed the £20,000 mark.

Madi’s custom-made wheelchair should arrive in Market Harborough soon.

The sports auction is at Harborough Town Football Club on Saturday, July 2, from 7pm.

The evening also includes a three-course meal and a table magician.

Tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for children.

But there’s a Mail offer: book a table for up to 10 people in the next week and it’s £75, including wine and nibbles.

Tickets and more details available from the Facebook page M.A.D for Madi - Wishes on Wheels appeal, or on 07840 993145 or 07840 986178.

In the meantime, Madi’s music studio session - sponsored by a charity darts match organised by Keith Low - has now produced a single.

The Madi and the Smarties tracks are already live for download on iTunes.

Keith is organising another charity darts match on August 12. This time it’s at The Three Swans, Market Harborough, and features two professional darts stars Terry Jenkins and Jamie Caven.

Tickets £15 from Keith on 07968 479991 or Rob Smith on 07866 143591.
