Hundreds of local Perthshire businesses are already backing this year's Perth Silent Auction.
You have probably spotted the high profile banners in the city centre profiling the annual fundraiser promoted by the Rotary Club of Perth and the Perthshire Advertiser.
On-line bids are being taken in advance of Saturday, December 7, when hundreds of lots will be snapped-up in advance of Christmas by big-hearted bidders.
