Case Studies

Here are just a few examples of events where our donated prizes were sold - 
UK Youth Gala Ball 
UK Youth held their 7th annual Gala Dinner in June 2018 and raised an incredible £116,000! A luxury Ibiza break was part of their live auction and managed to raise £4500 for this incredible cause. The evening was a huge success with performances, inspiring films and a fantastic range of auction prizes. It was a perfect reminder of "how together we can make a real difference to young people who most need our support."
Gosforth Girls Wedding Themed Charity Ball 
The incredible Gosforth Girls held a spectacular wedding themed charity ball in June 2018. They managed to raise £13,000 for three fantastic charities - Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, Breast Cancer Care and Ovarian Cancer Action. The ladies and their guests had a night filled with laughter, dancing and bidding and it was clearly a huge success!
