The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation is set to run another highly successful auction in 2019, and is currently inviting supporters to donate lots to its auction. Over the years, the NGO auction has become renowned for offering some of the best shooting, fishing and stalking lots, many of which are truly unique to the auction and this year with the help of members and supporters, it should be even more successful.
Tim Weston, the NGO’s Development Officer in the South said, “There is a huge amount of competition out there for auction lots now, but the NGO is an organisation that is close to everyone’s heart, and so we get offered some of the most amazing and spectacular shooting as well as other exceptional opportunities. We are therefore keen to continue this tradition by urging more people to donate whatever lots they can so that we make this our most successful auction yet.”
Of particular interest to bidders are the end of season keepers’ days. These particular lots always attract some really high bids, but the NGO is also interested in receiving lots for game shooting in all its various forms, including stalking, fishing, duck flighting or grouse shooting.
Liam Bell, Chairman of the NGO said, “I would urge everyone involved in the shooting world to submit lots to our auction this year. All the proceeds from the auction go towards supporting the NGO’s work and in supporting us you will have the reassurance that you are helping to defend gamekeeping and gamekeepers as well as promoting the very best elements of our sport. We are always hugely grateful to our supporters who donate lots and would like to thank them in advance for their generosity.”
The National Gamekeepers’ Organisation’s auction will be open for bids until September 2019 and once published, the auction catalogue will be available to view on the NGO’s website at (www.nationalgamekeepers.org.uk).Bids for lots will be accepted by email, telephone or by post.
To donate lots to the NGO auction, please contact either Tim Weston on 07590 885512 or email: email@example.com or John Clarke on 07824 099937 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
