With great thanks to many generous donors, there are some amazing lots up for grabs, with a combined full market value of some £10,000 but which could be yours at knock-down prices – unique experiences or treats that, normally, money could not buy, delicious food and drinks, many sourced from within our own village, and some fab “not on the high street” items that would make perfect Christmas gifts.
