Tring Market Auctions to Host Charity Auction in Aid of The Pepper Foundation

21 October 2013

 

Tring Market Auctions is delighted to be hosting a special charity auction on Saturday 23rd November to raise funds for The Pepper Foundation.

 

The Pepper Foundation is an incredible local charity dedicated to raising over 350K per year to fund the Pepper Children's nursing service in order to help children up to the age of 19 who have life-threatening or life-limiting illness. The Pepper Nursing Service features a truly inspirational team of specialist paediatric nurses who provide care and support to local children and families in need of support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Pepper Nurses, managed by Rennie Grove Hospice Care, provide a responsive, flexible and tailored service which is provided free of charge to children throughout the Chilterns area of Herts & Bucks. The Pepper Nurses work with families to provide children, siblings and parents with individualised care.

 

Tring Market Auctions will be dedicating this special Saturday auction to raising funds for The Pepper Foundation and will be donating all of the day's sale commissions and premiums to the Foundation. The team at Tring Auctions will be donating their collective daily wages alongside the proceeds from tea and coffee sales at the auction's café, Le Gavel. Sellers will also have the opportunity to donate to the Pepper Foundation if they wish.

 

A selection of local businesses will also be supporting the sale including Winslow-based Beautifully Different, who will be displaying a range of gorgeous ladies clothing, handbags and accessories, and Ramsbotham Florists who will have some stunning floral bouquets and displays on sale.
