The auction is live and quite a number of bids have been received for the wide range of interesting auction lots-some of which would make an ideal Christmas present. Make sure you put bids on for lots that interest you in case you forget or unable to do this when the auction is drawing to a close. It would be a shame to miss out on an auction lot because you were unable to bid and the lot goes for less than you were prepared to pay. Please remember that all the money raised from the auction goes into improvements in the River Dee and help us with our education programmes where we let people know how important the River Dee and its native wildlife are. You can access the auction here http://www.riverdee.org.uk/auction/auction.asp and you have to register by law to bid. Your details are not passed on to any third parties whatsoever. Please support this important fundraising event for the River Dee Trust.
The River Dee Trust is planning to hold an online auction to raise funds this autumn . The aim of the event is to raise awareness of the work carried out on the Dee and to raise funds to allow for the continuing improvement of the river. We raise funds for practical river improvement and to clear obstructions, allowing fish to complete their epic migrations and lifecycle. We also promote and support an educational programme for school children explaining the importance of the river to the region’s wildlife and local economy. If any reader of the blog wishes to help provide an interesting auction lot please get in touch with Ken Reid who is sourcing auction lots for this popular annual event. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance your help would be very much appreciated.
