Auctioneers able assistant Sean Humby!
The event kicked off with a fabulous seminar  from Julia Bramble – Bramblebuzz  –  Facebook for business!
A total of £1665 was raised in the auction (idea of the lots here)– over £400 for each of the Exeter Business Network Charities 2013 – a quick reminder on where your generosity will go to
The Devon Air Ambulance Trust  is the charity which raises the funds to keep 2 emergency Air Ambulances flying. This is no small feat as each and every year we have to raise in the region of £4.5 million to keep both of the helicopters airborne.  Click here to donate  
Families for Children  place children for adoption from throughout the UK, who have experienced loss and upheaval. We find for them stable, loving families in Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
We are special because we have a ‘forever’ policy of support and this means that we offer support to the child and new family for as long as they need us. Click here to donate
WESC Foundation’s  aim is the education and care of young people with visual impairment and/or complex needs and their transition into school, college and beyond.  By providing a specialist centre for education, training and expertise, WESC Foundation create a better life for people with visual impairment. Click here to donate
The vision of St Loye’s Foundation  is that each individual should have the opportunity to achieve their maximum potential, irrespective of natural abilities or setbacks experienced in life.
Mission – St Loye’s mission is to be the preferred choice of people with physical, mental health, sensory and other disabilities, or with long-term health conditions, to improve their quality of life and degree of independence.  Click here to donate
The Announcements – that would have been made!
