Hovingham Hall is to open its doors for a Grand Charity Auction which will support an organisation which re-trains and re-homes former racehorses.
Sir William and Lady Worsley will welcome the fundraiser for New Beginning on Thursday May 8.
Up for grabs are several horse-related lots, including tickets to most of the Yorkshire racecourses and the opportunity to bid for a box at York races, courtesy of Lord Halifax.
But there is also plenty more to suit all tastes, such as tickets to watch Yorkshire County Cricket Club, football matches, the theatre and many local tourist attractions. A week in a luxury apartment in Austria is also on offer as are meal vouchers, a gallon of whisky, perfume, chocolates and wine.
For a full list of lots, contact Ann and John Wilkins on (01653) 628368. Viewing, with a glass of fizzy, is at 7pm with the auction starting at 7.30pm.
