Charity hopes to raise much-needed funds through silent auction and prize draw
A lack of industry events and get-togethers throughout 2020, due to the COVID19 pandemic, has meant that the licensing industry’s charity – The Light Fund – has missed vital opportunities to raise funds for the various good causes it supports each year.
To bring a little Christmas cheer to the end of a tough year, and support those who need help more than ever this year, The Light Fund has launched a silent auction and prize draw, offering some incredible money-can’t-buy prizes.
You can view the prizes and auction lots, make your bids, and buy tickets over on the website – www.givergy.uk/TheLightFund. The amazing array of prizes have been donated from across the licensing industry and you can bid in the auction for prizes such as Sooty and Richard Cadell hosting a birthday party for a lucky child and five friends, or for author Jonny Duddle to zoom into a classroom to host a Gigantosaurus live drawing and reading event.
And as and when real life events return, there are some incredible lots available including a week’s holiday in Cornwall, a trip for two people to the MTV European music awards (including the after show party), and a pair of tickets to watch the Lions VS Japan at Murrayfield.
Moving onto the raffle where tickets are just £10 each. there are more incredible prizes including a £500.00 online shopping voucher with the Entertainer/Early Learning Centre or for the grown-ups, a £500.00 voucher for Selfridges.
Within three days of launching, the total donations were already up to £4,000, but with the support of the industry and their family and friends, the organisation is looking to raise a lot more, so please do bid away and share with family and friends who may like to be in with a chance of winning. Bids for the auction will close on 17th December, 2020, and the raffle will also be drawn on the same day.
