Auction of Promises - Saturday 2nd March 7.30pm, The Inn at Freshford

posted 21 Feb 2013, 03:46 by Parish Council Communications
A fundraising event in aid of Freshford Pre-School and Freshford Primary School PTA

Please join the Freshford Pre-School and Freshford CofE Primary School PTA for an enjoyable Auction Evening to be held at The Inn at Freshford on Saturday 2nd March.  Places at the auction evening cost £15 and will include a 3 course meal at the pub - places are on sale now! 
Funds raised will be split equally between the two schools and will help us to buy vital resources for both schools. It's a great opportunity for the schools to come together in their fundraising activities and there are some wonderful pledges available, with more being offered every day. 

What can I bid for?

For the latest list of pledges see: http://freshfordauctionofpromises.wordpress.com/  As always there is no obligation to bid (and a lot of the enjoyment of the evening is watching others bid), but to tempt you - some of the items available for bidding include the following:
A local meal out at the Stag Inn
A chimney sweep (the service from Clean & Go, not the sweep himself!)
A bike service
A google ad campaign set-up
A birthday cake
A pony ride
An architectural consultation from Designscape
An air pistol shooting lesson from a former Olympian
A place at a local cricket match.....    And many more.....

Thank you to everyone who has made a pledge.  Please contact Ian Pocock or Nicola Smith (jamesandnicolasmith@hotmail.com) if you have anything to pledge for the evening - big or small!
How do I purchase my place at the Auction Evening?:
To reserve your place, please email Ian Pocock (ian.pocock@projectharlequin.com) or call him on 07973 225140.

I can't come to the auction, but want to place a bid.  

How do I do this? 
Easy - just take a look at the list of items available on http://freshfordauctionofpromises.wordpress.com/ - and email Ian Pocock ian.pocock@projectharlequin.com with your price.  There is no reserve on any item - the starting price on the night will be the highest pre-bid if we have one.  The only exception to this are the cricket match places which are fixed at £45 per place and you can grab your place now at that price.

Many thanks to all of those of you who have already got involved.  We look forward to seeing you there!
