The proceeds of the Newton Stewart-based Galloway Fisheries Trust’s most recent bi-annual Dinner Auction, held at Lochinch Castle in September 2013, have now been distributed – to the benefit of not only the Trust but also two vital national charities. The event was a resounding success, raising £22,000. Last week the Trust shared the proceeds with Marie Curie Cancer Care (which looks after terminally-ill patients) and Combat Stress (which specialises in the care of Veterans’ mental health).
Dougal Evans, Galloway Fisheries Trust Chairman and Dinner Auction Committee Chairman, commented: “I am delighted that our most recent bi-annual Auction was so well supported, enabling us to distribute such significant sums to these two most deserving charities as well as making a major contribution to the Fisheries Trust. Our Auction is very much dependent on and we are most grateful to the generosity of many individuals who kindly provide the venue and all the auction lots. We are also indebted to the Auctioneer, Tom Lofts from Southern Auctions, and of course all those attendees who bid so generously on the evening”.
