The news that NWESSR's Facebook Winter Auction, raised an absolutely staggering amount, was met with delight by the charity. The auction was held in memory of our webmasters, NWESSR Rescue springer Paddy, who sadly went to Rainbow Bridge on 13th November.
The auction itself raised an impressive ...... £3065.68 ...... PLUS a further £250 was raised from 2 x football raffle cards - offering a Radley watch (donated by Vicki Cutler) and a genuine Jimmy Choo purse (donated by Ellie Armishaw) ... PLUS the lovely Sally Orrell donated bracelets which raised a further £330...
Another supporter donated a number of 'Piggin Pigs' which raised a further £105, one supporter donated 2 x 3 night breaks at her farm in Scotland - each raised £350 and another supporter donated a week in her holiday home in France.
The final total was a massive £3750.68
Everyone at NWESSR would like to THANK every single person who supported the auction by bidding, donating, purchasing items, rounding up their payments or just simply making a donation... And of course the charity is once again, full of gratitude to Webmaster Vicki Cutler, for exceeding her previous auction personal best, and achieving this extraordinary result, particularly when it came at the same time as losing her beloved Paddy.
Every penny really does count and this will make a HUGE difference to so many springers.
