A Festive Auction with Paul’s Cancer Support
Paul’s Cancer Support Christmas Auction
Following the cancellation of carolling fundraisers, Paul’s Cancer Support Christmas Auction will enable the charity to help local cancer sufferers in need.
With many large-scale fundraising opportunities out of the question for the foreseeable future, Battersea-based charity Paul’s Cancer Support Christmas Auction will be running online from November 16 – 30. Willing locals to get digital with them in their fundraising efforts, the event aims to raise crucial funds initially expected from their community carol concert.
Providing support, understanding and friendship for those suffering with cancer, Paul’s Cancer Support helped 500+ people in the 12 months to March 31 2020, having helped thousands in their 37 years. Providing support through every stage of the cancer journey from diagnosis through to treatment and beyond, Paul’s start where people are – with a presence in the community through group services, outreach work and in people’s homes.
With sponsorship from Douglas & Gordon, the two week auction will enable the charity, which relies entirely on voluntary donations and local support, to continue their work with families and individuals during their time of need.
Fundraising Manager Tara Sherjan said “we are extremely grateful to the individuals and businesses that have supported the Paul’s Virtual Christmas Auction. There is something for everyone from boxes of chocolates to beauty products, food and drink hampers to tickets for events and attractions. This auction will help us raise vital funds so we can continue supporting anyone affected by cancer”.
Bidding will commence November 16 and last for two weeks, with the charity hoping to raise upwards of £5000 to support their work. Bids can be made from the star date via this link: www.jumblebee.co.uk/paulschristmasauction
