KEECH Cottage Children's Hospice benefited to the tune of £1,400 when an auction organised by Sandy Air Training Corps cadets closed on Friday night.
Over 60 items went under the auctioneer's hammer at Shuttleworth College but at the end of the night the cadets were disappointed so few people attended the event.
Less than 100 people supported the auction and commander of 22 Sandy Squadron ATC Flt Lt Margaret Bell said: "It was a shame more people did not attend. It was disappointing but the people who did go were very generous on the night and everything went.
"The cadets worked incredibly hard to stage the event but we need more support locally from people in Sandy.

"If we had put the items on eBay we could have raised triple what we raised on Friday night.
"Most items given to the auction came nationally not locally but we were pleased with what we raised and everyone who supported us had a good time and auctioneer John Pilgrim was fantastic.
