Charity Auction in aid of The Mary Russel School

Feeling generous? Then get yourself along to the Crown Bar in Paisley either this Sunday from 4pm, or next Sunday (28th) at the same time, to take part in their annual charity auction. Their auction has been running for 15 years or so now, during which time thousands of pounds have been raised for local charities.

This years auction is in aid of The Mary Russell School and everyone is welcome to go along and grab a bargain.

Hundreds of items will be going up for sale, from household items and electrical goods through to other items donated by locals from the pub and local businesses.

There will also be some pretty special items going up for auction including:

  • A handbag donated by June Brown of Eastenders (Dot Cotton!), used in literally hundreds of Eastenders Episodes!
  • June Browns own personal copy of the script for the last episode that her on screen husband, Jim, took part in!
  • A number of items from the cast of River City
  • Signed Footballs and other Sports Memorabilia

There will be something for everyone, so please don’t be put off by assuming the auction consists only of high priced collectors items. Get along and see for yourself.

Anyone with any questions should contact either the Crown Bar directly, or get in touch with Paul Thomson (

A great event by a Renfrewshire pub for a Renfrewshire service, so please support it.

Feel free to send in pictures of you with your new item if you buy anything – email
