James Lewis to Take on World Record

James Lewis, twice winner of the “auctioneer of the year award” is attempting to set a world record by holding the longest auction ever held by a solo auctioneer, in aid of 10 Derbyshire Causes and Charities, of which Annabel’s Angels are one. The auction will take place at the Westfield Centre, Derby on the 28th November 2013 at 6:30 pm and will last a full 24 hours! All the proceeds from the sale of items will be donated to the participating charities.

The auction is to be highly publicised and supported by local press, TV and radio. The auction will be held in the same way as a usual Bamford’s auction; there will be several bidding options including online bidding on The Saleroom.

We are currently looking for businesses to support this innovative fundraising event. We need to generate as much interest as possible and we have a challenging lots target to reach.

Each charity must provide a total of 150 lots. These may be items, services, experiences or talents of any value from £10 to £10,000.00 or more. Vouchers for goods from Derbyshire based traders will be most welcome. In short, we are looking to receive any interesting, useful, valuable, novel or fun items.

This will be a unique fun filled event and we hope you can get involved. Donors will benefit from the publicity surrounding this prestigious event and the inclusion of their logo in the catalogue along with internal advertising at the Westfield Centre to promote your business at a key time in the shopping calendar.

In addition to Annabel’s Angels, the other charities taking part are: Tiny Tim Trust, Victim Support Derby and Derbyshire, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, Born Free foundation, Diabetes UK, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund, Crich Toy Library, Lion Roar and Derby Air Cadets.
