By the end of last Friday evening's club auction session, an amazing total of £1823.50p was raised to go towards financially safe guarding the club against overheads and any unforeseen costs going into 2013.
The auction side of the event was coordinated by our Fergal Byrne who had put in a lot of work gathering offers from sponsors and supporters. Offers included a hand made quilt, four nights in a Devon cottage, the cyclist breakfast for two and a uni-cycle. All went under the hammer. Committee member Patrick Field did a sterling job on stage as the auctioneer, doing well to raise the stakes and seal many good deals.
A big thank you must go to Giuliana Molinari and Paul Monks from Core Arts who provided us with their venue for the night and to all those who made bids and put their hands in their pockets. A special mention is due for Anna Hart too who had created and donated a CCH flag and bunting to set the scene.
