Charity Auction: Here's a taster of what's come in so far....
Behind the scenes our volunteers are busy working on our Annual Charity Auction in September.
Huge thanks to Winkworth Estate Agents at Kennington Cross for sponsoring our Auction to the tune of £1000!! This will more than cover the costs involved in pulling it all together.
As last year, the Auction will be held at the City & Guilds of London Art School on Kennington Park Road. The date is Thursday, 22nd September with a preview the evening before. This year, we are looking for paintings, small sculptures, figurines etc. that will bring in at least £20 each. We also are most anxious to receive vouchers from local businesses for restaurant meals, or food or wine or services – anything from baking a special-occasion cake to cleaning a patio!
We are already taking donations – artworks can be dropped off at the Countryside Alliance, The Old Town Hall, 367 Kennington Road SE11 4PT. Just phone Sarah Lee on 020 7840 9253 before you turn up. Note: It’s essential you fill out a donation form (below) and attach it to the work of art. Vouchers for pledges can be sent to KA at the below address.
Also, we still need a volunteer to coordinate volunteers! This mostly entails phoning around to get people to help out sorting, cleaning and moving items for the Auction. We have a check-list of tasks – you’ll just be asked to match up names with the job! You’ll also be asked to attend a few meetings of the Auction subcommittee to coordinate your activities with the other workers – we have nearly a dozen so far so you’ll meet new people and have fun as well.
The next meeting of the Auction sub-group is on Wednesday 3rd August at 2.30pm at Madeira Star Café, 337-339 Kennington Rd SE11 4QE in the back room downstairs. If you are willing to volunteer to work on the Auction, you would be most welcome to join us.
Here's a taste of what's to come....
