A silent auction at The Shore in Whiting Bay last Friday raised more than £850 for the village primary school.

Colourful spotlights and fairy lights welcomed guests who were greeted with a glass of complimentary prosecco as they enjoyed the heat and flickers of light from the fire.

The stage was set and as they enjoyed gentle music and canapés, they meandered through the Covid-safe one way system, their eyes drawn to beautiful handmade items.

Guests made bids on an array of amazing handmade items including stunning art across a range of media, photography, food, jewellery, hair accessories, signed books and more which had been gifted for the auction. Anyone not able to attend was able to make bids on items in advance.

This was a spectacular fundraising evening for Whiting Bay Primary School, supported by an incredible number of local makers, which raised £851.99 for school funds.

Organiser Charlotte Martin said: ‘This was a huge community effort. The Shore thanks all the kind helpers and everyone for their incredible donations and generous bids.’
