The Dinner Auction is run every two years to raise funds for three charities; Galloway Fisheries Trust, Marie Curie and Combat Stress. 

Thank you to all 200 people who attended, those who donated lots and those who worked to make the night a great success. The lots donated were varied and included arts and crafts, fishing, shooting, days out and food & drink vouchers to name a few. Even some ducks found a new home! Keep an eye out in local magazines and papers for pictures of the event and we will soon give an update on the total amount raised on the night.
