This year, we were chosen as Toovey's Antique and Fine Art Auctioneers' nominated charity for its Christmas Private View and Charity Auction. The event took place on Monday 1 December at Toovey's auction house in West Sussex, where we enjoyed a wonderful evening event, complete with a selection of unique, high-end lots available to bid on.
Alongside the auction, we had a tree of delights, where people could pledge £20, £50 or £100 to receive a gift. All proceeds will go to Outside In.
In addition to the event on Monday 1 December, we auctioned works by twelve Outside In Award Winners on Wednesday 3 December, with the aim of raising as much as possible for the project.
We'd like to say a big thank you to all of the organisations and individuals who donated prizes for us to auction and give away. These include: Lisa Edwards Hairdressing and Skincare, Crabtree and Evelyn, Bloomingvilles, J&B Interiors, Hennings Wines, Thorntons, Kate Mosse, Cass Sculpture Park, Chichester Festival Theatre, Aspinals of London, Ainsley King at Less is More, Whitbreak Wilkinson, Hearst Magazines, Mike Russell at Holistic Health, Lounge of Lewes, Kate Simms, Rohans, and Prestel Publishing Ltd.
We would also like to thank everyone who came along to either event, and of course to everyone who donated. In total, we raised:
