The last few months have been an incredibly busy period, firstly with the now annual Royal Cornwall Show Grand Charity Auction which was held in the Cornish Mutual marquee in conjunction with Francis Clark, Cornish Mutual and Barclays Bank. This year’s event raised a staggering £9,300 for the farming help charities RABI, Addington and the Farming Community Network.
We were also joined on the evening by the Boscastle Bouys sea shanty singers and in return for providing the entertainment we were also able to make a donation to their chosen charity.
The auction was jointly conducted by Edward Buckland and Robbie North with Robbie astounding our guests for the evening with his amazing raw wit and humour.
Elsewhere Edward conducted a charity auction for the St Mawes School PTA which raised £2,799 on 11th June and on Sunday 19th July raised £2,500 in aid of Mount Edgecumbe Hospice in memory of Anthony Povey at The Wheel Inn, Tresillian.
Our next charity event will be the Newlyn Fish Festival Auctions on Monday 31st August at Newlyn Fish Market.
