supporters,

Usually we run a silent auction to raise additional funds at Canterbury Champs, this year we will be running an Online Auction before the event.

We are seeking donated goods or services that we can use to be auctioned either as single items, or to be included in a couple of hampers. If you have any things you’d like to donate, horsey or non-horsey we would be sincerely grateful. E.G: lesson’s, massage’s (horse or human), beauty products, horse gear, homewares, wine, gourmet pantry items, etc etc...

Please contact Cherie Pearson, Sarah Cornwall or Sally Goldsmith, or message this page to arrange drop off before 31 October.


Thanks for your support.
