Our Auction of Promises evening on Saturday 14th September is shaping up to be one heck of an event, raising money for Cornwall Hospice Care.
As well as delicious food, fantastic live music from Eva Abraham Band and lots of dancing, there will be an auction of wonderful promises, some of which we are delighted to unveil below. We are enormously grateful to all the individuals and companies who have generously given. Tickets are £25 and the event starts at 7pm.
