After a summer of seeing giant decorated hares all over the town, Haslemere held its grand auction of the resin sculptures, with a glittering reception.
The Grand Finale Auction was a huge success, the auction lots alone raising £15,000, with ticket and merchandise sales still to be finalised.
Thanks to the generosity of both Lythe Hill Hotel and Aspinal of London, every penny of the ticket revenue is going to Stepping Stones School and Christophers Chase Shooting Star Hospice.
This is in addition to the online auction which raised £7,670.
Haslemere Hares are a part of a community arts project to raise funds and awareness for a variety of local and national charities.
