Auction of Promises – thank you David Upshall

Auction of PromisesOur first online ‘thank you’ of the year goes to David Upshall for his ‘Auction of Promises.’  Held at Dukes Auction Rooms in Dorchester, the night raised an amazing £4,590.

The Auction of Promises

It was an exciting night!  Auctioneer Gary Batt entertainingly presided over the evening. He sold lots ranging from a Dell laptop to Premier League Rugby tickets to a tour of Classic FM’s Studio in London.

As you can see, there was a brilliant turn-out.  David ensured that guests included Dorchester Mayor Susy Hosford, members of the Dorchester Lions and local businessmen and women.

Support services in Dorchester and West Dorset

This has really given our Dorset Mind West appeal such a boost.

The total currently stands at £8,870 – this has enabled us to appoint a new Project Manager, Louse Regan.  Louise has begun to organise our new services and as a result we’re advertising for our first paid position.  We intend to start our Dorchester Wellbeing Support Group as soon as the appointment has been made.

Thanks to David, Nigel Reeve and Anita Harries – without their support we would not have got this far.
