A SINGLE Bromley lass is inviting hunky men to bid for her company on Valentine's Day.

Hope Anscomb, 24, is offering herself up for a dinner date on February 14 with the auction money going towards The Autism Trust.

The bachelorette said she’s hoping to see lots of high bids but would love to find true romance at the same time.

Miss Anscomb, of Valley Road, said: "It would be brilliant if it turned out I found Mr Right.

"I’ve never been on a blind date before although I’ve done internet dating.

"Everyone is just assuming some creepy guy is going to find me but I think whoever bids will already have a good sense of humour.

"I’ll have no clue who it is but it will be fun. I’m really looking forward to it."

Miss Anscomb said she’s booked fancy Italian restaurant La Gourmandina in Bloomsbury for the night and is forking out for the meal - but stressed that drinks are not included.

She said she’s a big fan of Italy and wouldn’t turn down the chance to share the date with a man from the country, though added a previous encounter with a Latin gentleman didn’t end particularly well.

The fundraiser said the cause means a lot to her as a family member and a close friend’s brother suffer from the disorder.

She has already raised £1,800 for the cause since September last year with events including a 24 hour hula-hoop session, bag packing at a local supermarket, running a kissing booth and growing a moustache for Movember.

"I really enjoy the charity work," explained the Valentine’s Day sweetheart, "I don’t want to do something boring.

"I want to do silly things which people will pay money to see me do. There’s got to be a good reason.

"Getting to know new people is great - it’s social."

She also said she won’t stop at an evening out - her next plan is to pose naked as a life drawing model and intends to auction off the picture.

All proceeds from Miss Anscomb’s date night will go to The Autism Trust.

The auction opens on February 1. Visit eBay

What about afters? No I don't mean that kind of afters.

I hope (no pun intended) that Hope raises as much money as possible. A former colleague and lovely person who is doing much to raise money for this great cause. She deserves your support, even if you don't get the date with her.

Does anyone wanna know why we have such a high autism rate? Or do you believe just giving money away in a belief that money cures all.

Hi
The founder of The Autism Trust, Polly Tommey works tirelessly to raise awareness and investigate the reasons behind how so many children are affected by Autism and works closely with Dr Wakefield. I support the Trust in different ways. I provide them with funding that allows young adults that have no other way of learning skills and interacting with other the chance to get skills to allow them a form of independence.
The Trust also provide a forum for families with children with Autism and Aspergers to share experiences and support each other. The people involved work incredibly hard and I support them by doing what I do.
I hope that answers your question. If you are interested in knowing more about what the trust does then please look on their website and look up Polly Tommey. I will also always answer questions :)

Just another perspective.

If you are going to continue drugs for treatment then I am going to be investing some money in the drug companies and I am going to make a 'killing'. Keep vaccinating your money kids, I WANT YOUR MONEY!!!

I wouldn't go on any date knowing that this world is a copy of a planet that was divine. This copy of a planet is infected with evil. inverted from good to evil. I would do this young ladies mind in about what autism is and what the body is and how the human race is how it is today. Her mind wouldn't understand such knowledge and ruin the night.
