A FANTASTIC team effort from Caledonian Marts, the Stirling based livestock and specialist auction company, saw a hugely successful charity auction in support of the people of Ukraine recently raise more than £70,000.

Held live and online, with everything from a llama, to fishing days and everything in between. “We were delighted with the support our auction received,” commented John Kyle, MD of the company, who said the money would be split between UNICEF for the children of Ukraine and via the Central Plains Group for farmers there. “A massive thank you to all donors and buyers,” he added.
