Fundraising Events/ Charity Auction
Felixstowe Rotary Club conducted an online auction of sporting memorabilia between 8th and 21st June.
Thanks to all who supported our online auction
With the cancellation of this year’s charity boxing event, we were left with several items of high-class sporting memorabilia that had been purchased for auction on the night. At the same time, with a still greater demand on our depleted resources, we needed to be able to release funds to support disadvantaged individuals and families in the Felixstowe area. Hence our venture into the world of online auctions.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, bidders and donors, the auction grossed over £2,500 and all net proceeds will go to our Community Funds.
Looking forward to next year’s event.
Boxing Night items to be auctioned for Felixstowe charities
The auction items were scheduled to be sold at our annual Charity Boxing Night. This is always a very successful evening and raises a large amount for local charities but, as with so many events this year, it had to be cancelled. Because these auction items were not now required for the event it was decided to raise the much-needed funds by auctioning them online. Bidding opens 8 June and closes 21 June.
The items are framed football shirts of Messi, Ronaldo, Bergkamp, Henry, Pele and Greaves. In addition, there will be cased gloves from Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Roberto Duran. Lastly, there will be a White Hart Lane street sign bearing the signatures of Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
