Online Auction Night raises £4,000 for The Churn Project
The Churn Project’s Live Online Auction on Friday, 19th November, raised an amazing £4,047 for the charity, thanks to the quality lots and promises donated by local businesses and individuals and the auctioneering skills of Moore Allen and Innocent’s Philip Allwood.
The Cirencester-based charity, which supports young families and people at risk from isolation and loneliness in the town and surrounding rural villages, has been busier than ever over the past 20 months during the COVID pandemic. The money raised from the auction will make a big difference to what The Churn can continue to deliver over and above its regular services.
Ailsa O’Connor is The Churn Project’s Community Partnerships officer and she also leads the Churn Champions, a small team of volunteers responsible for fundraising. Commenting on the auction, she said:
“This has been a rollercoaster of a fundraiser. We had to postpone our original ‘in person’ auction night planned for September but we were reassured by Moore Allen that an online event could be just as successful. And so it has proved! I would like to thank our wonderful Churn Champion volunteers responsible for organising the event, our generous donors, and the amazing Philip Allwood and his colleague Lucie Rowe at Moore Allen auction house who made everything happen on the night. The results speak for themselves!”
