Auction & Hotpot Night

We are so pleased to announce that our Auction & Hotpot Night on Friday was a huge success, raising £1,800 for Walthew House! All money raised will support people in Stockport with a sight or hearing loss.

Thank you to everyone who made a pre-bid, or bought a ticket and came along on the night, to Lynx Taxis for sponsoring the event, and to our volunteers, we would not be able to run events like this without the hard work from so many volunteers! A special thank you to Mike, our auctioneer for the night.

The highlight of the evening was certainly other bidders chipping in to make sure Josh won the signed Stockport County shirt (pictured below).
