PROJECT RESOUND – MAY UPDATE

April 27, 2019

The Honeybee talk was an entertaining sell-out and the event overall raised £1835.

Thank you to everyone who came along, bought honey, other bee products and donated. The special edition Resound Borage Honey, one of the sweetest and tastiest of honeys, was a great bonus. Particular thanks go to our speaker and honey maker Rob Nickless and local business, Infineum, which match funded the monies raised at the event. Our fundraising total has now reached £44,158 (59%). Meanwhile, whilst our artists are busy selecting, cutting and treating the glass ready for the window, we are working on other activities.

PROMISES AUCTION WITH INTRODUCTORY WINE TASTING

There is still a chance to secure tickets and to bid for birthday/anniversary gifts for partners and parents and ways to entertain children in the school holidays.  A reminder too that pre-bids may be submitted up to 5pm on 6th May by those unable to attend on the night, by sending an email to gillianloyd@gmail.com stating  name, address, lot number, lot description and the amount of the bid.

The evening will start with an introductory wine tasting served with canapes, led by our regularly visiting “Wine-Man”, Ian Hewson.  The auction will be compered by our auctioneer, Mr Chris Mousley-Jones!

Tickets for the auction are available for tables of 10 (and sold individually) at Blewbury Post Office. £10 per ticket including wine tasting, canapes, cheese and biscuits.
