Request for Charity Auction Prizes

For Black Tie Dinner with Stuart Lancaster on

Saturday 21st September 2013.

We would like to ask for your help in offering some prizes for the Charity Auction which will take place as part of the Black Tie Dinner with Stuart Lancaster on the 21st September.

This unique fundraising event will raise money for the Calvert Trust and the Cash for Kids - ‘Give Me a Break’ appeals – both charities work to benefit young people with special needs in West Cumbria. In particular, The Calvert Trust has been of great benefit to the life of one of our own, much valued former pupils, Thomas Froggatt. A donation will also be made to the St Bees branch of the RNLI.

We are looking for 10-15 main prizes which could help to raise money for the above charities. Ideas for prizes could include a themed break (Fishing/Winetasting/Cooking/Golfing), a holiday/shortbreak (hotel/Timeshare/self catering), a case of wine/beer/whiskey, an 'experience' (balloon flight, helicopter ride, Racing/Classic Car trip), Tickets to Sporting Events, Signed Sporting (or other) Memorabilia or anything else you may have access to and could offer. On the other hand if you are not able to offer anything personally, but would like to help, a donation of money could be given to 'purchase an experience' which could then be offered for auction.

Any suggestions or offers would be gratefully received, however big or small, as the money raised will be very much appreciated by the local charities mentioned above.

Please get in touch as soon as possible with any offers of prizes.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks.
