Roadshow will be the guest auctioneer at a fundraising event near

Foundation (AAF) on Saturday June 14th.
Burks, General Manager at the Brent Knoll garden centre, said:
"We are delighted that Philip Taubenheim will be able to
attend the evening in aid of the AAF."
Moon Bear Rescue project involves rescuing suffering and endangered
Asiatic Black Bears from bile farms and bringing them to its sanctuary
in Chengdu, China. The bears, known as Moon Bears because of the
golden crescents on their chests, can spend up to 20 years in
coffin-sized cages where they are milked daily for their bile.
The bile is then used in traditional Chinese medicine.
added: "All the profits from the evening will be donated
to the AAF to help with its work rescuing and treating Moon Bears."
