CR’s Charity Auction took place on Saturday 4 September, after months of planning and organising we are pleased to say the event was a success!
The Great Hall was packed full of wonderful treasures, and bidders came in great numbers looking to grab some bargains! It was a wonderful happy day and we thank all who attended – you showed a great amount generosity, goodwill and good humour!
The auction has raised around £14,000, with further amounts expected once Gift Aid has been processed. The sapphire ring, the Mouseman lamp, the rocking horse and the Kashmir rug were the star items on the day.
We would like to thank everyone who donated, we couldn’t have held the auction without your generous donations! Thanks also to brethren, Companions, College, staff, volunteers and friends who assisted with the auction.
Special thanks to our auctioneer George Gribben for his expertise and great sense of humour, and his brother Fr John CR who worked tirelessly to make the day a success. He continues to amaze us all with his energy!
