The attendees then took their seats for the charity art auction. Auctioneer Jonathan Waterhouse did an amazing job or comparing and auctioneering, with every donated lot sold!

A final total from the auction, which was hosted and organised by Yellow Edge Gallery, will be posted as soon as we have the information from the gallery, but we know it broke the £1,700 barrier! Thank you to everyone who donated works, attended, bit, volunteered their time and contributed.
