Samantha Drake has spent a long time making this fantastic Silver Cavers Cup which she has generously donated to the Ghar Parau Foundation (Charity Number No 1185385). :clap: :clap: 

It is a fantastic one off piece, which is hallmarked. She has also made two sets of bat earrings and a bat pendant, again donated to GPF. A massive thanks from GPF go to Samantha for her support for the Ghar Parau Foundation. Many many thanks ;- ) :clap: :clap:

The cup will displayed at Hidden Earth 2019 in the Art Salon and be sold by Silent Auction during Hidden Earth, subject to a reserve price. We hope people will like the cup and support GPF by bidding for this fantastic, one off piece of caving artwork. If you cannot make Hidden Earth and would like to put in a silent bid then please contact Secretary-[at]-gharparau.org.uk and we can arrange to add your bid to the auction.

Many Thanks
Phil Rowsell
The Ghar Parau Foundation Secretary

I thought at first that "haul marked" was a spelling mistake for "hallmarked", but then realised that much caving equipment is actually haul marked.

Anyway, it is an impressive piece of work. Well done.

There was a typo in the offing though
