From David Beckham’s left boot to a villa for six in Mustique, Fun Raising Events sources unique lots for silent charity auctions. The company supplies professional fundraisers for these events, who source the items, exhibit them on the night and encourage guests to bid using iPads. Once the auction is closed, the experienced team informs the highest bidder and later collects their money. The items provided for each auction are provided on a sale or return basis. There is no cost for the prizes themselves, nor is there a charge for Fun Raising Event’s services. Since its launch in 2006, the company has helped raise over £8m for charity. Its auctions make an entertaining addition to both private and corporate events. Live auctions can also be arranged, with professional auctioneers to call out lots and entertain guests. The company is based in London but operates throughout the UK and also abroad.
