But where is the Auctioneer?

Auctioneer David Brookes
Once Auctioneer David got going there was no stopping him. He is, without doubt, a very good auctioneer.
This auctioneering thing is clearly quite compelling; Hon. Sec. Helen will have a go, at anything?

This is our premier fund raising event which we hold every few years and we hope that you can support us.
We are indebted to many local businesses, and individual residents, who have donated a total of over thirty really great pledges for this event. Entry is strictly by numbered ticket, which, can be purchased from each of the three charities' shops in Grange-over-Sands and any member of the club. There will be a ticket draw for a Luxury Food Hamper, so, even if you cannot attend the auction, you will still have the chance of winning this valuable prize.
