Charity’s ‘Cheesy Auction’ gathers lots of Lots!

Cheese, wine and a fabulous list of lots

Fancy a holiday in Tintagel?  Or a painting by a Royal Academician? Or dinner for two at The Gunton Arms?  Or the Gate of India?  These are just some of the brilliant lots up for grabs at a Norfolk charity’s Auction of Promises – and the evening kicks off with a glass or two of wine and the chance to sample Mrs Temple’s Cheeses.

Other lots available on the night include handmade jewellery, flower arrangements by King.Whitham, a lino print, tickets for the theatre, a personal tour of Mannington Hall with tea for four, a holiday in the Cotswolds and a hand-crafted wooden stool.

The event, in aid of Hospice Ethiopia UK, takes place at St Michael’s Community Hall in Reepham on Saturday June 8th.  Tickets, which include a cheese plate and a glass of wine, are available through Eventbrite and cost £10 plus booking fee – go to and search ‘Charity Auction and Green Growth’ or visit    Alternatively, tickets can be bought direct from the charity (with no booking fee) by emailing

“I’m so very grateful to all the people who have donated lots for the auction,” says Sue Mumford, chair of Hospice Ethiopia UK, which is based in North Norfolk.  “It’s a fantastic list and we hope it will encourage our guests on the night to dig deep!”

Hospice Ethiopia UK, which is based in Aldborough, North Norfolk, exists to raise funds for the African hospice, which is the only one in Ethiopia, a country with a population of over 120 million.  As well as looking after hundreds of desperate people and supporting their families, Hospice Ethiopia is a centre of excellence, training medics in palliative care so that they, in turn, can bring relief to thousands more patients.  The Hospice receives no funding from government and relies heavily on the Norfolk-based charity to continue its vital work.
