‘Lots’ of goods, services and excursions were up for grabs at the event, such as a holiday to Portugal, days out to local attractions and an electric guitar and amp.
When all was said and done the day proved to be a tremendous success, raising more than £2,800 for the hospice.
Principal funeral director Rob Ripley was the auctioneer for the seventh year running. “I am very pleased with how the auction went, and once again a great amount of money was raised for the hospice,” he remarked.
Manager of John Taylor, Colin Millington, added: “It was a great team effort, particularly for a Sunday. All [of the] visitors seemed to enjoy themselves and my appreciation goes to everyone concerned for helping to make the day such a success.”
