Online auction in aid of the Connor family

In response to the tragedy that recently impacted on The Connor Family in Woodborough, Wiltshire, friends of the Connor Family have put together this amazing online auction.

In response to the tragedy that recently impacted on The Connor Family in Woodborough, Wiltshire, friends of the Connor Family have put together this amazing online auction.



The purpose is to raise funds that Greg and Niki can use as they consider appropriate, but at the same time provide some fun and rewards to those generous enough to participate.



For full details of their heartbreak, please click here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-12771072



In the auction, there are some fabulous prizes on offer, ranging from holiday homes in the UK, bespoke jewellery, sporting tickets and memorabilia, lunch for 4 at the fabulous Berry Bros in London, as well as some very unique lots to bid for such as a signed framed Harry Potter movie poster from the recent film premiere, or alternatively why not bid for a one-off 200 sq. foot billboard space for that very special message, anywhere in the UK.



All our prizes have been very generously donated by a whole range of people, some of whom did not know the family, but responded to the sadness of the story, and just wanted to help. We would like to thank all of these companies and individuals for their kindness and benevolence, and all the proceeds from this auction, excluding delivery charges of course, will go directly to the family.



So now you can help too, and win yourself a fabulous prize in the process. For all the auction details please go to:


http://www.stores.ebay.co.uk/theconnorfamilyfund



We would be very grateful if you would please share this message with your family and friends, by emailing them this link - there may be something on offer that they would really love too, and you may get a bargain!



Auction launches 9pm Thursday 26th May and closes 9pm Sunday 5th June 2011 so dont miss out!



We have also been asked how people may donate to The Connor Family Fund, without bidding in the auction. If you would like to do this, please send a cheque payable to G&N Connor, c/o The Connor Family Fund, Highbanks, Bottlesford, Pewsey, Wiltshire SN9 6LU, with a contact email or postal address so that we may provide you with a receipt.



Thank you so much for your time and your support.
