It’s been about two weeks since I first posted about my idea of organising a charity auction. Lots has happened since then and I thought I’d update you all on the progress.
All items in this auction will be sold in aid of The Brain Research Trust, the umbrella charity for research into conditions of the brain and nervous system such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis and Brain Tumours to name just a few.
Please check out their work here.
What I’ve done over the past two weeks is pretty simple. I’ve sent lots of emails and contacted a bunch of people working in the theatre industry asking for their help. And I have to say the amount of support I have received has been quite amazing.
Thanks to the kind help of various wonderful people a couple of great items will be auctioned off next month. Watch out for signed posters or programmes from shows like Jersey Boys, Shrek, Dreamboats and Petticoats, Wicked, Lion King, Les Miserables and more. And there will be something for fans of Ramin Karimloo and Kerry Ellis as well.
At the moment I’m planning to start the auction just before christmas. Don’t worry in case you’re away around that time. The auction will run until the first week of January to give everyone a chance to take part. And hopefully there will be something in it for all you theatre loving people – you could own a great piece of theatre memorabilia and support a wonderful charity at the same time!
Thank you to everyone who is supporting and helping me to make this project happen. You are all amazing!
