In these times, with so much focus understandably on unsettling and frankly scary circumstances, we need to take time to share positive news to keep our spirits up. So we’re more glad than ever that we delayed the Jamieson’s of Shetland Christmas Bauble auction until now.
The response in terms of baubles, and even gnomes, sent in before Christmas was outstanding. 264 baubles in all, and we auctioned 7 gnomes too. The gnomes finished first, and this morning we announced they’d raised £237.55 with the baubles still being bid on. Honestly, that total alone is breathtaking, but then, there’s the baubles themselves.
We’ve now totalled the winning bids, and can now say that the baubles alone will have raised an overwhelming £1208.27 when the payments have all come in. That means, all together, the appeal has raised £1445.82!
It is a truly heartwarming display of generosity in the midst of all that’s going on, a reminder of all that humanity can be even in troubling times. Thanks to each and everyone who has contributed in any way.
