Auction  - Payback Day

An auction was held in one of the craft units at 2:30 on Payback Day.  The auction had many items donated by not only islanders but also "Friends of Gigha", including a Gigha Tartan Rug donated by Janette Ker the designer of the tartan, many paintings by John Wood, Fen Sutherland and the island's Malcolm Henderson and a unique painted miner's hat with a scene of Durham Cathedral . 

A generous donator put in a bottle of the Limited Edition "Spirit of Gigha" which didn't reach its value of £500 and will be sent to the next Whisky Auction.  Mrs Janet Hemmingway had lots of her appliqué cushions with scenes of the Island and a beautifully decorated Celebration cake (which was purchased by Catriona Tulloch and is displayed in the Hotel) and not forgetting Mary Freckleton's also beautifully decorated "Anniversary Cake". 

The items donated and supporters of the Auction are too many to mention but suffice to say the total raised on the day was just short of £2000.   A big thank you to everyone who put their hands in their pockets to support the Trust and to Mr Robbie Wilson , Auctioneer, a weel kent face on Gigha who extracted the maximum bids with lots of humour and leg pulling.  Great fun!!
