Windmills Preschool Charity Auction

Auction on Friday (6th July) to help raise money to move the pre-school to new premises. Some fantastic items on the list.

Windmills preschool is holding a Charity Auction as part of their H.O.P. (Help Our Preschool) Move fundraising campaign.

This unique event is being hosted by The Village Inn, Bembridge on Friday 6th July from 8.30pm.

Official auctioneer, Rex Gully of Hose Rhodes and Dickson, will be wielding his gavel on the night and offering you the opportunity to bid on over £5,000 worth of unusual and prestigious lots donated by our generous Island wide sponsors.

What’s up for grabs
Fancy a flying lesson? Or maybe a year’s Gold Leisure Club Membership at the Bembridge Coast Hotel? Top up your tan with St Tropez, treat yourself to a facial or get those toes minxed for the summer.

Get in shape with a course of zumba or yoga and then sit back and enjoy your garden weeded by someone else! Treat the children to a forest party or maybe a pamper party would suit your little princess?

Prefer to travel the Island in tandem or in a limousine? Enjoy a luxury weekend at a private waterside residence or spend a week on St Helens Green or in The Castle.

Something for the foodies
Lunch or dinner at Locks Lane, Priory Bay or Dan’s Kitchen may tickle your taste buds.

These are just a few of the fantastic lots to bid on to raise money to help the preschool move.

Refuel with hog roast
The fun does not stop there! Following the excitement of the auction sit back and enjoy some soulful sounds thanks to our fantastic hosts, Jay and Kelly Chapmen. You can refuel with a hog roast from Combley Farm courtesy of Rob Groves, probably the best pork supplier on the Island.

Promises to be a great night. Come and join us!

Collect a full book of lots at Windmills, Bembridge Primary School, Lane End Welcome Store or The Village Inn.

I clicked on the facebook link and was directed to Windmill Pre-School in Brill.
I hope that the auction goes well, this school does a brilliant job and the girls raising the money need all your support. They really have some fantastic prizes.
If Mr Pugh should read this could he perhaps think of diverting some money from his £2.3m underspend to keep the school open.

Not sure how that happened – have updated the link now, should go to the correct place ;-)
