We are looking forward to next month when these items go under the hammer to raise funds for Cranford Hospice who have been called ‘Angels on Earth’ by families of patients cared for by Cranford.” Mrs Milmine said.

Mike McRoberts, Event Ambassador says "I feel absolutely honored and privileged to be the Event Ambassador for this event, it encompasses two amazing things, supporting Cranford Hospice and the best wine in the country! I'm really looking forward to the main event in November"
