The Silent Auction items will be displayed along with the details, the lot number and the latest bid.

If you wish to bid you must go to an Auction Assistant who will be delighted to help. You will be asked to fill in some brief contact details on a card then your bid will be registered.  This will go up on the board replacing any previous bid and stay there until someone bids higher than you or until the end of the auction.  If you are successful you will be asked to settle your bid on the evening.

Festive Hampers Raffle

There are about 25 fabulous hampers to be raffled during the evening. From Festive Hampers to Pamper Hampers please take a look at the great quality of hamper contents.  They would make wonderful Christmas presents if you weren’t tempted to keep them for yourself!

With thanks to our sponsors

None of this would have been possible without the wonderful support of our sponsors who between them have covered all of the costs involved.  A huge thank you.
