It’s only a few days since we announced the details of our Auction of Promises fundraiser to help ensure this year’s Brockley Max festival goes ahead. Thanks to the great support we’ve had from auction organiser and CroftonPark.com blogger Jane Martin (aka @JaneCanDo), coverage on Brockley Central and the efforts of our Facebook and Twitter followers, we’ve managed to spread word of the fundraising auction at the Ladywell Tavern on Friday 28 March far and wide.
We’ve been giving out leaflets today at Brockley Market, in Ladywell and in local shops, and have had a warm reception from everyone too.
We’ve also been able to secure even more promises for you to bid on. We now have more than 80 items for our auction ranging from foodie treats and nights out to handyman services, fitness classes, handmade clothes and original art. What a wonderful show of support from our fantastic local businesses and individuals!
Now what we need is support on the night. You don’t need to spend a lot to make a difference to the overall total but the more people who come and buy something, the more money we’ll make towards putting on Brockley Max. You don’t need to get into a bidding war either. A number of items will have price tags so you can turn up and buy them on. The auction starts at 8pm and will be hosted by The Spy Who Loved Me Bond girl Caroline Munroe. You’ll be able to view the auction lots from 7.30pm. We’ll have an auction catalogue for you to consult on the night and there’s also a list of promises here.
Finally, if you can’t make the Auction of Promises event on Friday 28 March but you want to show your support for Brockley Max, Patchwork Present has set up a fundraiser for Brockley Max too. You can donate here.
We’re so excited about the return of Brockley Max. Here’s to nine days of fun that everyone in the area is invited to.
