Charity Auction Success

Going – Going – All Gone!

Crosby’s Soroptimists have held a highly successful auction, raising over £1,700. Proceeds go to Liverpool University Hospitals Charity (towards a women’s “room of safety”) plus other local charities.

Pam McKee, Chair of SI Crosby’s Fundraising team, was MC for the event. She said: “Thanks to generous donors – and keen bidders – we raised that magnificent sum.

“Club member Pat Murphy, was once again our auctioneer. Pat is very experienced at squeezing out every last pound – and she really kept the evening going most profitably.

“Guest speaker was retired local jeweller Marie Caddick. Lab-grown diamonds? This was new to most of us, and Marie gave a fascinating insight into this latest development in the jewellery business.

“Our Soroptimists, family and friends had great fun – with a purpose. A huge thank you to all. “
