Fun, Learning, and Achievement

23 April 2019

An Auction of Promises, which included a hamper donated by HRH Prince Charles, has raised £8,000 towards Threemilestone and District YFC’s goal to buy the land where its clubhouse is based.

The fundraiser, held at Griggs Restaurant in St Austell, involved 200 people bidding on 110 lots donated by club members, local and national companies.

Ed Harris from Lodge and Thomas was the auctioneer and helped to raise the funds, which will support the Club’s Fundraising for our Future campaign.

Natalie Brown, Publicity Officer from Threemilestone and District YFC, said: “Many competitive bidding wars were happening between friends to ensure they won the prize! Thanks must go again to the team who organised the event and put in hard work over the last two months on top of their days jobs. A truly tremendous evening.

“The encouragement and support from the general public, club members’ families and friends and businesses has been incredible and made the club members feel supported on their mission to secure the site.”
