When we set up in business – we started looking for ways in which we could support local businesses and charities with fundraising events.
In one of our first auctions we sold a charity produced locomotive which had been produced by the teenage cancer trust.
We gave the proceeds to the Teenage Cancer Trust as would have happened when it was originally sold.
Obviously this was only the start, and in May 2018 we were very pleased to be involved in a charity auction in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at the end of a charity golf day. This was organised by Oliver and Akers Estate Agents, and Jonathan succeeded in surpassing their expectations with the total amount raised from the auction on the night.
Our next challenge is the Home-Start Speakeasy Fundraiser
Home-Start helps families with young children deal with whatever life throws at them. They support parents as they learn to cope, improve their confidence and build better lives for their children. Home-Start believes it is crucial to help families deal with problems before they become a crisis. The benefits of their support include improved health and well being and better family relationships.
Each ticket bought for the Home-Start Speakeasy on 10th November provides one week of support for a Home-Start Family.
Entertainment for the evening includes a charity auction, which is where Excalibur Auctions comes in. Our amazing auctioneer Jonathan is once again stepping up to the rostrum to provide his services free of charge in support of this valuable local charity.
