AUCTION RAISES £20,000 FOR CHARITY

MACMILLAN Cancer Relief's Stranraer Appeal was given a tremendous kick start at the weekend. For a rural auction at Sandhead raised more than £20,000.

Never was a farm building put to better use than on Saturday when Jonathan Hall's large grain shed at Kirkmabreck, Sandhead was the venue for the auction.

Months of planning and preparation by the Stranraer and Glenluce/New Luce committees and their parish co-ordinators paid off handsomely and the support on the day from the agricultural community and the general public was overwhelming.

Hundreds gathered as auctioneers Caledonian Marts, Stirling assisted at times by Murray Irving sold everything from prime livestock to bric-a-brac.
