October 18th: Auction of Robins for Notts Hospice

The 34 gorgeous robins who’ve brightened up the city centre over the summer flew into St Mary’s last Thursday for a grand auction. They completley stole the hearts of bidders who spent £133,000 for the privilege of taking one home.  All proceeds went to Nottinghamshire Hospice who organised the event.

The cost of using the church was generously donated.
