Charity auction – The result

11 Dec

Today marked the end of my charity auction in aid of The Brain Research Trust. I am thrilled to announce that a total amount of £611.50 has been raised.

When I started this whole auction I had no idea how well it would be received. The outcome is definitely everything I could have hoped for and more.

Thank you once again to everyone who has made this auction possible. I couldn’t have done it without the help of all those lovely people who have contributed posters and programmes and who helped with getting items signed. Thank you all so much. You are all stars!

Another thank you goes to everyone who has bid in the auction. Congratulations to all winning bidders. You have not only purchased a lovely item of theatre memorabilia, you’ve also done something good along the way by supporting the work of The Brain Research Trust.

I’ve already started posting items to their future homes. The first few items are on the way. Another lot will be send tomorrow afternoon (please complete payment before 2pm tomorrow to make sure your item/s will be amongst the things sent out tomorrow).

Thank you once again. I loved organising this and it’s lovely to have so much support and such a fantastic outcome.

Please keep supporting The Brain Research Trust.

I’ve been advertising this for a while so it’s about time I’m finally starting my charity auction.

First I would like to take a moment and thank the people who have helped me with putting this auction together: Dean Chisnall, Sandy Moffat, James Winter, Jason Winter, Michael Conway, Sebastien Torkia, David Page, Darren Carnall, Kelly Ewins, Joel Marvin, Pam Clasby, Emma Whelan and Helen Barratt. Thank you all so much! x

And now, on with the auction. All items are listed on Ebay. The auction is running until 11th December. I figure some items will make a lovely present so just to confirm: Yes, I will make sure to post them in time for christmas!

Please bid as generously as you can. All money goes to The Brain Research Trust so you’re doing something good and you’ll end up owning a great piece of theatre memorabilia.

Make sure to tell all your theatre loving friends about this. Thank you!

Charity Auction

27 Oct

Hello everyone,

no review or interview for a change but a personal message from me to let you know that I’ll be holding a charity auction through this blog. I’m in the very first state of planning so please bear with me for a while. However, I thought it would be best to get the word out as soon as possible.

So, what exactly will this charity auction consist of? Obviously it will be theatre related. I’ve been in touch with several people and it looks like I should be able to obtain signed programmes or posters from quite a few West End shows. And with that I mean signed by the whole cast (or at least a large number of cast members). Since most readers of this blog are devoted musical theatre fans I figured this would appeal the most to you guys.
There will probably be a few special performer related items as well. I won’t go into detail now but I’ve got a few ideas which I think you’ll like (and which will hopefully make you spend some pounds).

All money will go to The Brain Research Trust. I learnt about this charity this summer through a friend and I’ve decided that I want to support their work. Please have a look at what they do by visiting their website: http://www.brt.org.uk/.

What I would like you to do for now is simple: Tell all your musical theatre loving friends. Help me get the word out by sharing this blog post on Twitter, Facebook etc.
I will keep you all informed of the process of my preparations via Twitter @Steffi_G and @CoA_Theatregirl . At this point I’m hoping to have the auction up and running around christmas time.

Thanks for reading and please do tell your friends about this. xx
