A CORONATION Street star is backing an event in aid of the Domestic Abuse Safety Unit (DASU).

Ian Puleston-Davies, who plays Owen Armstrong in the soap, has donated his character’s builder’s box to auction off to raise funds for the cause.

Mr Puleston-Davies hails from Flint and now lives in Chester.

The charity quiz and auction event will take place at St David’s Park Hotel, Ewloe, on Thursday, marking 12 months of fundraising activities by Outwrite, based in Mold.

The online marketing specialist has raised £1,324 for the charity. It aims to break the £2,000 barrier on the night. It has also carried out work free of charge for the charity.

The builder’s box will include Owen’s hi-viz vest, signed by other Corrie characters, plus a letter to the auction winner from Owen.

Tracy North, Outwrite managing director, said: “We have received fantastic support during our fundraising activities which included a team hike up Snowdon.

“Ian’s thoughtful gift of a unique prize is attracting interest from Corrie fans and we are certain it will help us maximise the funds we raise on the night.”

DASU is a not-for-profit organisation providing information, support and advice to survivors of domestic abuse in the region.

Sian Hughes, from the charity, said: “As well as volunteers, donations play a key role in the services we provide to the community. The fundraising carried out by Outwrite will help us to assist more and provide a better service to victims of domestic abuse across North Wales.”

Tickets for the event, which starts at 7pm, cost £10 and include quiz entry, a raffle ticket and a light snack of chips and dips.

Donations of prizes are welcome for the raffle. To donate visit
