Skipton Auction Mart festive charity showcase nets record amount
Charity auctions staged alongside Skipton Auction Mart’s 12th annual Christmas primestock shows this year realised over £5,000 for several charities, a record amount. (Sunday, December 1)
As in previous years, the main beneficiaries are Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope, Brooklands Community Special School in Skipton and national farming charity, the Addington Fund, who will all receive a share of the £4,262 raised to date, with potentially more still to come in. Between them, the three charities have shared windfalls running into many thousands of pounds since the event’s inception.
