The hammer came down at the end of last month with a gala evening for those who took part in the fundraising. Organised by Russell Baker, lord of the manor of Little Moulton, of Bracon Ash, near Wymondham, the auction was supported by businesses and individuals to raise funds to provide care and support for children with life-threatening conditions and their families across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire.

Mr Baker thanked everybody involved in the event, and added: “I am absolutely delighted with the final figure raised, this is the first year of the auction event and the success can only mean the Each Charity Auction is here to stay.”

The auction ended with a night of celebration and prize presentations at the Artique Galleries in Norwich. It was also supported by Barclays bank, which marketed the event in its Norfolk branches, while four employees, Cheryl Todd, Emma Hague, Bethany Rump and Matthew Walker were involved in fundraising.

Each’s Norfolk fundraiser, Laura Shearing, said she was grateful to Mr Baker and everybody who supported the bidding.
