What an amazing success our 2021 auction was. In this difficult time we pondered on how many good auction items we could achieve and were our supporters even ‘in the mood’ for another fundrasing event!….. So many answerred the call to donate fabulous items to auction and many more shared our efforts far and wide to gain as much exposure as possible. 2021 far exceeded our expectations and raised over £22K towards our RIVERWOODS project. THANK YOU, to all who gererously donated.
In December 2020 the Trust held its very first online auction. We were so incredibly grateful to the wonderful auction lots we received from local benefactors and from supporters and individuals further afield. At auction launch we had over 30 lots to promote. As it was our first time, the staff at the Trust were checking every hour and more on the progress of the bids, it was an exciting and thrilling experience. The interest and response we received way exceeded our expectations. After the auction concluded we achieved close to £9K from bids and pledges, an incredible boost to the Trusts funds in these challenging times. Alas, some of the wonderful event lots have regrettably been postponed due to travel and other restrictions still being in place. We are assured however, that the winning bidders will have the opportunity to enjoy their experiences in the future. Our thanks are expressed once again to the wonderful supporters of the Kyle of Sutherland Fisheries Trust.
