The Wave 105 Cash for Kids team is thrilled to announce that £38,541 has been raised through its annual charity auction – the most successful auction to date.
Through its charity auctions and other activities organised by Wave 105 Cash for Kids, over two million pounds has been raised in donations and gifts in kind since 2008.
Now in its sixth year, the 2015 auction was open online for one week and people had the opportunity to place their bids on many ‘money can’t buy’ and ‘unique experience’ prizes. The bidding culminated on Wave 105, Thursday October 8 at hourly intervals throughout the day.
Businesses from across the region were extremely generous with their lots which included spa treat days, hotel breaks, a chef experience, holidays and unique gifts to name just a few.
One lucky bidder has purchased the opportunity to sit in on the Wave 105 Steve Power at breakfast show, followed by breakfast with the host himself.
Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager, Gloria Hill, said: “We are totally overwhelmed by the amount raised through this year’s auction. Every year we hope that we’ll be able to beat the previous year’s target, so we’re thrilled to announce that we have done so once more.
“Our auction wouldn’t be possible without the support of local businesses who kindly donate auction items to us. It was a pleasure to welcome some familiar faces who donate gifts to us year upon year, as well as to some new companies that have come on board for the first time. Also, thanks go to everyone who took part in the lead-up and on the day of the auction. Their money will enable us to continue our work with disadvantaged children across the south.”
