A very special charity auction will also be taking place throughout the evening with some incredible prizes including a signed rugby shirt by the British and Irish Lions Squad, a signed racing helmet from Olympian Sir Ben Ainsley, an original oil painting by local artist Alice Hole, a stay and dining experience at The Greenbank and Alverton hotels and much more.
