North Cornwall is stoked to announce that St Merryn Fatstock Auction has raised £4,261.05 for The Wave Project and The HM Coastguard Rescue team.
On Tuesday 5th December, The Cornish Arms in St Merryn hosted the annual community Fatstock Auction. “Little Chef” ran the proceedings on the night which kicked off at 5pm and ran until late.
A record-breaking £4,261.05 was raised through attendees bidding on donations from local businesses, which ranged from spa days to pickled onions!
Nick Morris, one of the Event Organisers, said:
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone turned up to make it such a fantastic night and of course to everyone who donated, if it wasn’t for your generosity we wouldn’t be able to continue holding such events in the future!”
Svenya Haffenden, North Cornwall Project Coordinator at The Wave Project, says:
“It was such an awesome community event, the room was full to the rafters with both donations and people, I couldn’t believe it! We are really grateful to the Fatstock team, all the local businesses who donated, everyone who placed bids on the night and to The Cornish Arm for hosting the event. It is a great privilege to be selected alongside The HM Coastguard Team. The funds raised will make such a difference to help young people improve their health and wellbeing through surfing in North Cornwall. The donation of these boards will help make our Surf Club more sustainable in the future.”

I would love to hear from you!
