Recently I spotted an update by one of our members Swain Brothers about their donating some items to this Cancer Research UK auction event.

I contacted Tim Swain for more information and this is what he sent me:

The auction is part of a charity dinner organised by my daughter Kaiya. We have several items which will go in the sealed bid auction and we have donated a fully fitted composite front door which depending on the style could cost around £2000 if supplied and fitted by us.

People not going to the dinner can bid by either emailing me or private message before 12pm Saturday and I will put their bid in an envelope along with everyone else’s on the night. People can even turn up to make bids in person if they want to. The tickets for the meal have sold out but there is a bar in the function room and anyone is more than welcome to come and bid on any of the items for a £5 entry fee.

Instead of a raffle we are auctioning balloons in different price brackets that will have a piece of paper inside with the prize written on it, these prizes are worth up to a maximum of £250-00. If you are successful in bidding on a balloon then you get to pop it and see what you’ve won! There is a prize in all of them and these will be auctioned off in price brackets 3 at a time so everyone stands a chance of winning. It will all take place in the function room at the Red Lion in Stone Cross. If this night turns out to be successful then we will most certainly make it an annual event.

If you know anyone who could donate a bottle of helium that would be good we have around 200 balloons to fill!

If you have any questions about the door or intested in updatig your existing door please call Swain Bros on 01323 458150
