'help the hospices'

Post by kate! »


I work for Towergate, a large Insurance Underwriting Group. For many years they have supported 'Help the Hospices' both locally and nationally.
2006, though, is the year we'll really make a difference.

Towergate are going to fund the build of a new residential hospice -
From the design to the construction.

In order to raise some of the money to do so, we'll be doing all sorts of fundraising.

Inspired and touched by the care hospices offer, I became part of the 'Fundraising Team' for our office. We, alone, are looking to raise at least £10,000.
I'm organising an auction as part of the fundraising. And hope to include some signed memorabilia and autographs.

I'm just collecting a few addresses right now, but i'll get writing shortly..

I'll keep you all updated with how it goes!

As a newbie to this lark, any help, advise or suggestions would be very much appreciated! :D

Hi Kate and Good Luck in your auction {up}

Charity Auction

Post by matthewsparks2002 »

Hi just read this forum about Charity Auction.
My partner and i are doing one for Demelza House in kent.

I didn't realsie how much hard work is involved.

But any source sharing we greatly appreciated.

sucesses so far.
Frank Carson.
Raymond Briggs.
Katie Melu
Bobby Charlton

All in a reasonably short space of time of sending the letter.

No can dos so far

Elton John
Richard Branson

But they are very generous in there own way and very busy so you can't expect a 100% sucess rate.

Also found this site that is good for getting contact addresses for authors.

Good Luck from someone who knows.
