A private on-line auction for Allan Mullins' medical support

Our friend, Cape Wine Master Allan Mullins has had a huge impact on the South African wine scene, especially in his capacity as Wine Selector for Woolworths

He has done this despite having to live with a severe disability since he broke his spine in a diving accident at the age of 23. He has been in a wheelchair since then. He celebrated his 70th birthday last month
Living with such a severe disability presents severe medical challenges, especially as one reaches an advanced age, and this becomes very expensive. A group of Allan’s friends and family has put together an auction of Special Vintage Wines, Unique Experiences, Art and Accommodation to boost his Medical Fund. The success of the auction rests on getting the word out to as many people as possible, so please

•         forward this message to your contacts
•         post the graphic below on social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc)
•         bid for items yourself!

Many, many thanks to the generous companies and individuals who have donated such an exciting range of auction items
