President of Clay Cross Inner Wheel, Sue Glover, welcomed 46 members, Rotarians and friends to a silent auction held on Wednesday at Grassmoor Golf Club. Those present enjoyed scrutinising the 150 lots laid out on tables and making bids for the items which took their fancy by writing down their offers. Participants then had to be ready to make a higher bid if they really wanted something.
After supper a final bid time was called and the last bidder was able to claim their trophy.
A total of £430 was raised for president Sue’s chosen charity, Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Sue gave thanks to Julie and Barbara Marshall for all their hard work in collecting, cataloguing and displaying the goods.
To end the evening, Stephen Wright generously gave and auctioned bottles of wine to add to the final total raised.
