community, in particular local businesses, who donated lots for auction
and supported this new fundraising event and especially site visitors
who took part by bidding.
We do plan to make the
Online Christmas Charity Auction a regular feature of Peterborough
Community Website and are also happy to offer the online auction
facilities to any other charities who wish to run a similar fund
