Promises Auction at Melton Country Fair

This month, Belvoir’s ‘charity champions’ Belvoir Melton Mowbray are organising a charity Auction of Promises to take place at their local Country Fair on Sunday 29th June.

The Leicestershire based Belvoir team have secured a number of donations from local businesses which will be sold ‘under the hammer’ during the fun family event at Town Estates Park in Melton Mowbray. Funds raised will be presented to the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service.

Auction lots include a hamper from Dickinson & Morris, a round of golf for four people at prestigious Stapleford Park, a Brewery Tour of Belvoir Brewery and a Go-carting experience courtesy of F1 Karting, plus many more.

“We decided to organise an Auction of Promises because it seemed like a fun idea and we’d be able to get lots of local businesses involved,” says owner of Belvoir Melton Mowbray Charlotte Baker.

“Every year we support a different charity – and this year we put a number of suggestions from the team into a hat and pulled out the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service. We hope that proceeds from the Auction and our other fund-raising activities, such as bag packing in our local Sainsbury’s, will help raise more than £2,000 for them.

“All the team at Belvoir Melton Mowbray work incredibly hard to help raise funds for charitable causes each year and we’re very much looking forward to presenting a large cheque to the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service.”

Belvoir Melton Mowbray are well-known throughout the Belvoir group for their fund-raising activities and have been recognised as ‘Charity Champions’ at the annual Belvoir awards for the last three years running. Previous charity events they’ve organised include a children’s fun area at the Melton Mowbray Country Fair, a Family Fun Day at Melton Park and a gruelling 24-hour static cycle ride at their office.

So far the team have raised more than £3740 for good causes and are looking forward to boosting their charity total further this year.
