Local auctioneers, including RG and RB Williams at Ross, are supporting The Merry Millers, which is probably the largest farmer orientated fundraising group in the area. So far the Merry Millers have raised about £90,000 for local charities. and they are looking to push past the £100,000 mark this year with their latest project involving the auctioneers.
The Auctioneers have agreed to sell a pen (or two) of old ewes, lambs, goats, tups at one of their sales in February or March 2019.
Ian Pugh, and his daughter, Janey Cotten have been overwhelmed by support, not just from the Ross farming community, but by auctioneers and farmers from across Herefordshire, Monmouthshire and even further afield.
All monies raised will go directly to local charities, those they have helped so far include St Michael’s Hospice, as well as Haven Breast Cancer and The Wye Valley Trust for a machine to detect the early signs of cancer.
The sale of tickets for the final Merry Miller’s Dinner, Dance and Auction on May 3rd has now exceeded 300 with some 12 weeks to go and Jenny and Ian told the Ross Gazette: “We are absolutely delighted. We are well on the way to reaching our target.”See this week’s paper for more stories like this, available in shops and as a Digital Edition now.
