On Thursday last week, we held an auction here at Shinfield View, with all proceeds going straight to the Thames Valley Air Ambulance, and it was such a huge success. We kicked off the night with a speaker from Thames Valley Air Ambulance, then we started bidding! We had some amazing Lots given to us by small and large companies, which helped us to raise a whopping £1,900 – thank you so much to everyone who donated such fantastic Lots and thank you to those who came along and placed such generous bids.

The Thames Valley Air Ambulance provides life-saving emergency medical service to Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, but as they’re a charity, they rely on the generosity of the communities that they serve. As Shinfield View is in the heart of that, we wanted to do our bit and raise some much-needed funds for this amazing service.

The auction was a resounding success - Lots were very desirable, from dining at Gordon Ramsey's to Henley Regatta VIP Tickets, and a Spa Day with Lunch at the Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa, voted Spa of the Year!
