Auction & Sale of the Joyce Cocozza Collection
On behalf of Joyce Cocozza we will be holding an Auction and Sale of her entire plant collection.
The auction will take place at Joyce's home on Saturday 3rd of May 2014. From the pictures attached you will see some amazing specimen plants both Haworthia and Gasteria with a few other genera thrown it.
Viewing will commence at 10.00 am on the day of the Auction.
The auction will start at 12 oclock prompt. Because of the number of plants a list of auction lots will not be possible, but all auction lots will be numbered and on display on the day. Please do not contact Joyce about the sale & auction, any enquiries should be directed to the Society.
As this event is being held at Joyce's home we would ask that everyone attending respects her neighbour's and park your cars considerately please to not cause offence.

The Haworthia Society has recently been recognised as an Educational Charity by the U.K. Inland Revenue. This means that we may claim back from the I.R., via the "Gift Aid" scheme, the tax paid by UK members on their subscriptions - provided, of course, that we have the member's permission. You may have noticed, on the membership renewal forms, a tick box to that effect. If you are a UK taxpayer this will incur no additional cost to yourself but will enable us to keep subscriptions down. So please tick the box if you are in a position to!
