London Auctions has taken part in a range of activities to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
- To launch the charity partnership, London Auctions held a sale to introduce Macmillan Cancer Support as our chosen house charity and to raise awareness of the great work the charity do. The sale was opened with a short talk by Callum Mackay, Macmillan Fundraising Manager for North West London, outlining who Macmillan are and they services they provide. The auction included several items offered in aid of the charity which raised several hundred pounds for Macmillan. The Cafe Bar provided special treats and cupcakes and provided a bottle of champagne to competition winners on the night.
- We have participated in Macmillan's annual coffee morning.
- We included a clause in our consignment form that now provides the option to donate sale proceeds directly to Macmillan. This feature offers vendors a simple donation alternative and a means of supporting the charity through us.
- We took part in our local Macmillan branch's event at the Chiswick Tennis Club. We provided free valuations alongside some of television's top antiques experts.
- We provided a gift wrapping service at Christmas with donations to Macmillan.
- Members of staff ran a 10k to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
