Auction house

Piers Gough gave a bravura performance at the AA charity auction last week, which raised nearly £26,000 on the night, with internet bidding bringing the sum to £30,000.

Honorary treasurer Simon Allford led the way with a substantial (£3,100) purchase of a Frank Lloyd Wright lithograph, donated by Allford's old chum John McAslan. A splendid time was had by all, and organisers Ken Powell and Alan Stanton looked both pleased and relieved that it had gone so well. To put the figures into perspective, the AA operates at about a five per cent margin, so raising £30,000 for bursaries is the equivalent of taking £600,000 in fees. How about an annual event with a gala dinner? Members would probably be delighted to get involved.
