Auction success for Midhurst Time Bank

THE Midhurst Time Bank team celebrated its first birthday with a party in the garden at Capron House.

After an introduction from David Underwood, chief executive of Chichester Area Mind who fund, guide and support the project members moved on to a fundraising auction under the hammer of auctioneer Rob Campbell, a time bank member who had also written a special song for the occasion.

The 22 lots raised £699 which will go towards the ongoing running costs of the time bank.

“We are very grateful to all the local businesses who supplied prizes and to those members who kindly donated their time and skills. It was a lovely evening for supporters,” said Susanna Lloyd, Midhurst Time Bank development worker.
