Team Romania's Silent Auction

Stonar's Romania Challenge team will be running a silent auction and raffle at the Summer Fete in June, with a fabulous array of prizes on offer.

The Romania Challenge is facilitated by People Against Poverty, a local charity based in Hilperton who arrange for teams of young people to raise funds and carry out a building project such as building a sanctuary house, for a family in a deprived area of Romania.

Stonar's 2016 team will be working for a family in Iasi, helping them build a better life for themselves. Each pupil needs to raise at least £420 and they have been fundraising all year, taking part in sponsored bike rides, cake sales, car washing and much more. The team will be running stalls at Stonar's Summer Fete on Saturday 25th June, incuding for the first time, a silent auction with some fabulous prizes on offer:

Lot Number 1: Richard Hawkins - Slave for a Day

Need help with your chores? Mr Richard Hawkins will come to the lucky winner's house and do any reasonable jobs, such as washing the car, cleaning kitchen cupboards, cutting the grass, cleaning ground floor windows and sills, running the hoover around, dusting and any other jobs which you have been putting off for some time!

On an agreed date, he will be available from 10:00 to 4.00pm with a 30 minute break for lunch and he is willing to travel within a 20 mile radius from Stonar.

Lot Number 2: Own an Event Horse for a Day

Are you an aspiring eventer? The winner of this prize will be invited (along with 3 friends/parents) to join David Doel for the day at a local One Day Event, whilst he competes on one of his qualified horses. David has represented GB in three day eventing since 2011 and, most recently, was a member of the bronze medal-winning team at the European Young Rider Championships and winner of the Goldman Cup in 2014.

The day will start from his yard in Lacock and the winner will be able to assist David with his horse throughout the day, and when collecting his prize (should he win) at the end of the day. Lunch will be included.

Lot Number 3: Classic half day spa and lunch at Woolley Grange Hotel, Bradford On Avon

Need a break? The winner of this prize and one friend will enjoy a relaxing half day spa at the family-run Woolley Grange Hotel, set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside.

Arrive for a complimentary beverage and then enjoy a 30 minute treatment. Unwind in the spa facilities, then indulge in a delicious two course lunch.
