Update on the Charity Auction at this year’s AGM.
As you all know a number of items of camera equipment were donated to Hitchin Camera Club earlier this year, by a gentleman named Peter which belonged to his late father. Peter’s father’s wish was for his camera equipment to go to someone who would appreciate it, so along with some other items donated by members we hosted a Charity auction at the end of the AGM in aid of Cancer Research.
Marcus acted as our auctioneer and the 47 lots promoted some competitive bidding and some lively banter with most of the items being sold. Several members bought 2 or 3 items and there were definitely some bargains to be had.
With a little “top-up” from the Club funds we’re pleased to announce we raised £120 for Cancer Research.
Andrew, many thanks for letting me know, that’s great news and very generous of your members. I’m so glad the equipment has raised money for a good cause, my father would have been delighted.
Many thanks for all your help.
