Auction of Promises 2019

Auction of Promises 2019

On the evening of Friday 26 April we are holding an AUCTION OF PROMISES to raise money towards refurbishing the kitchen in the Parish Centre. This is where people bid for the time, skills or opportunities offered by others in an auction.

Firstly we are asking everyone to think of something, or several things, which you could offer as a ‘promise’ which others may like to bid on. A few ideas are… a home made cheese cake, loaves of bread, dinner for 6, family history research, a personalised poem, gardening, car washing, dog walking, ironing, a horse ride, keep fit classes, motor bike ride, bell ringing for an occasion, computer lessons.

It must be something which you can provide and which you are prepared to cover the cost or expense of providing—you may therefore wish to state any restrictions of time or value so it is clear to those bidding.

So what hobbies, skills or interests do you have? What service or time could you offer that someone else might wish to bid on? An offer slip is provided opposite for you to complete to the box at the back of church. Alternatively you can offer on line stchadsparishcentre.org,, e-mail your offer to the Parish Centre
(stchadsparishcentre@btinternet.com) or get in touch by telephone (0113 2307665).

Please could we receive all offers by Friday 12 April so that a catalogue can be produced and made available before the auction itself. You can still be involved by offering a ‘promise’ or by placing a proxy bid against one of the items in the catalogue (forms will be provided when the catalogue is published, and made available online)

Secondly we need your support on the night to bid on the promises being offered in the auction. A catalogue of what is on offer will be available from April 14, 2019 at the back of church, in the Parish Centre and on the Parish Centre website
(www.stchadsparishcentre,org) so you can choose your lots. The Auction will take place in the Parish Centre. The bar will be open from 7pm and a hot pay as you feel supper will be available. Bidding will commence at 8pm. We will accept cards, cash and cheques as payment for your bids.
