Over 100 lots, ranging from dog walking, cake making and baby sitting
to stays in holiday homes, all donated by villagers, were very ably
auctioned by Mike Carter from Lutterworth.
As with the previous auction, the holidays attracted the most interest
and the highest single bid was for £500 for a one week holiday
in an appartment in Portugal. The owners of a holiday home in the south

allowed the last two bidders a week each at the same price.
The proceeds of the auction will be split between St Peter's Church,
the Baptist Chapel, the Village Hall and the Loseby Wood project.
