£3,500 raised for Sheffield Children’s Hospital

October 22, 2015 | Posted in: News

Our Brewery Tap, The Nags Head at Loxley held their annual harvest auction on Saturday 17th October, and raised a whopping £3,500 for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Auction items were donated by local businesses to support the event as well as homemade cakes and chutneys donated from local residents being amongst the items on offer. Local resident Stephen Helliwell, renowned for his entertaining auctioneering skills, hosted the event which saw pub locals battling it out for the auction items.

A jar of pickled onions stole the show – bringing in £150! In line with tradition – a coin filled turnip was on offer, with the value of its contents unknown, someone took a gamble and paid £40 for the privilege of boiling it down to earn their wares.  One lucky bidder scooped a £100 holiday voucher for just £10. However, the price of a loaf made your eyes water – £7 for a homemade loaf of bread – but all for a good cause!

The Sheffield Children’s Hospital charity is a cause close to many people’s hearts and this was demonstrated by how deep people dug into their pockets to support the event. Bradfield Brewery would like to thank everyone who donated to the event and everyone who attended on Saturday and helped to make the event a great success for another year running!
