I am currently helping organise an online auction in aid of Marie Curie Cancer Care.
This appeal is on behalf of a friend of the Paisley website.
I am trying to raise as much as I can for this very worthwhile charity, following their help with an immediate family member in her final stages of life.
I obtained permission from Marie Curie to do the fund raising, and received both a written letter & email letter of authorisation. I have approached various “Celebs” via Twitter, asking if they would be willing to donate something to be auctioned.
Angela says, I have received quite a number of replies with promises of help, so far I have managed to secure 10 signed books, music goodies, a signed limited edition print from an artist, & a one off piece of handmade costume jewellery, along with other bit and pieces being sent to me, (such as signed pics etc) A friend of mine has helped out by enlisting the help of 2 other very well known “Celebs” and I have secured items from them. And may also have secured the rugby ball from the forthcoming Scotland v England 6 nations game.
The online auction is planned for the end of March, once I have gathered everything up to auction, as I want to do one big auction.
I am looking for items that the public might not ordinarily be able to obtain, and as a huge Robbie Williams fan have recently purchased a limited edition of a Robbie Williams Commemorative 2010 Brit award plaque that is limited to 250 copies, which I plan to auction in aid of Marie Curie in my auction.
Any help would be very gratefully received.
If you can help please email Angela Heaney firstname.lastname@example.org
If you cant donate something yourself then please pass this on to someone that can help…
Remember all proceeds will go to a very worthwhile charity, The Marie Curie Cancer Care charity.
