Amazing auction prizes for this year’s Spring Fling
I am so pleased to announce a fantastic selection of auction prizes for Godwick’s Spring Fling. As always we are overwhelmed by people’s generosity, so a big thanks to all those who have kindly donated. Please come with your wallets charged to grab one of these fabulous offers and help us raise money for the Breast Cancer Unit Development Fund at the QEH, Kings Lynn. Our aim is to raise £10k for the charity, which would take our overall fundraising for the unit to £30k over three years.
This year’s auctioneer is Mr Roy Tilley, an all round good chap, who is known to me as a cricketer of some repute in Lincolnshire, but more importantly as a fast auctioneer. For those of you who attended last year, he will have a PA system that works, so you will be able to hear and with 12 lots, we won’t keep you from the dance floor and the Sally Taylor Band for long.
