80 people attended an auction at the Gainsborough Hotel in Bath to support Bridgemead Residential and Nursing Home, raising £6,000 in charity auction.
Addison Gelpey was the auctioneer and did a brilliant job selling the ‘money can’t buy’ prizes including: a tour of the House of Commons with Wera Hobhouse, a Westminster experience with Lord Foster of Bath, and a trip behind-the-scenes at the Holburne Museum with the Director, Dr Chris Stevens.
Bridgemead’s patron, Marian McNeir, MBE said, “I am thrilled to see so many people here. Bridgemead is one of Bath’s most loved and respected residential and nursing homes. We are so grateful for everyone’s support and help in moving forward with our vision to make Bridgemead fit for the future. Our auctioneer, Addison was a star and the musicians were lovely. We are delighted this has been such a successful event.”
Matthew Blower of Fine & Country Bath, sponsors, said, “We wanted to show our respect and appreciation for all the incredible work that Bridgemead achieves and to highlight this to our community.”
