We would like to say a huge, Elmer-sized THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered their time to help the weekend run smoothly, to Metro Radio for the soundtrack to the weekend and to all of the stall holders, entertainers and companies who offered support. But most of all, we want to thank every single person who came along to celebrate with us. We were overwhelmed with the turnout and it was lovely to see the enthusiasm and love for our herd. As well as the support of St Oswald’s Hospice, who will benefit from all the profits raised.
As you may know, the final part of the trail will see most of the bog herd go to auction on Tuesday 12th November at Sage Gateshead. At Elmer's Big Charity Auction, the elephants, including some specially commissioned, never before seen lots, will go under the hammer, with all profits supporting the work of St Oswald’s Hospice. Tickets are on sale via Sage Gateshead’s website for £15 each including a fizz reception. If you would like to bid but can’t make it in person, you can register to bid by telephone or online through Anderson & Garland Auctioneers:The Big Elmer Charity Auction
