Proceeds of auction top the £1,000 mark
THE annual Harvest Auction held by Carnhell Green Charity Vintage Rally has raised more than £1,000 for charity.
Held at Rosewarne Manor, the event sees an assortment of donated items by being auctioned to raise funds for the Cornwall Air Ambulance, St Julia's Hospice and the Children's Hospice South West.
The highest bid was made for a giant pasty, which was then cut up and sold to the guests at the auction, bringing in more than £100.
Fred Pascoe, chairman of Carnhell Green Charity Vintage Rally, said: "It was very well supported. People were very generous giving us items. We had all sorts.

"Many thanks to Cyril Eustice and family for the use of the Manor. We are grateful to the auctioneers, Martyn Rowe and Andrew Body, and to all those who attended the auction and made it a great success."
A variety of items offered at the auction, which included vegetables, cakes, tools and household utensils, brought the final total to £1,684.
The Carnhell Green group plans to have a presentation ceremony in October, when the money raised from this year's events will be put together and distributed to the charities.
