They measure 220 cm x 72.5 cm and are ideal for display at school sports projects and in cycle shops, but will look equally great on a bedroom wall.

Chairman of the Council Linda Brockbank said: "We've had a lot of interest in the banners and bunting and wanted to give people, businesses and organisations a fair opportunity to obtain these souvenirs. Personally, I am thrilled that all money raised will go to the very deserving charity Lupus UK and look forward to receiving the bids Systemic lupus is a chronic and presently incurable illness of the immune system."
