22 June 2017 Auction of Promises – 20th Anniversary
This annual event is our big fundraiser – the income it generates varies between £12,000 – £18,000 each year. The concept is simple – parents, teachers and children donate either a ‘promise’ or an object. Typically, we receive over 100 donations which are compiled in a professionally produced catalogue. Then, on the big night, these are sold off to the highest bidder. We have many parents who are known artists and sale of artworks makes a significant contribution to our income. An exhibition of auction artwork is hung in the school a couple of weeks before the event, so that parents and children can enjoy the contribution of our artist community.
