Promises Auction 2017

More people than ever before came to CRCB's Promises Auction

CRCB's big spring fundraiser, the Promises Auction, took place on Saturday 8th April at Beechwood Lawn Tennis Club. The event was so popular this year that we had completely sold out of tickets two days before the auction.

Over eighty people filled the beautifully decorated Easter themed room and the atmosphere was buzzing.

The band Long Way Round opened the evening with their upbeat music.

In her usual impeccable style, Trustee/Manager Patricia Griffiths catered for the event. A hot buffet was served from the top table with help from CRCB's volunteers.

Then the Promises Auction began. Our Guest Presenter was BBC Coventry & Warwickshire's Vic Minett who added her own comedic touch to the exciting auction.

The auction was a huge success. It was incredible to see such a range of people bidding. We really appreciated everybody's efforts to fundraise for CRCB. The auction itself raised over £1300.

The whole event raised in excess of £3000 for CRCB.

We would like to thank everybody who came along, everybody who donated promises to the auction and everybody who helped out in some way on the night.

We are very grateful for all of your support and hope you thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
