Thank you for making our fundraising auction such a success!

What a night! Our fundraising auction took place on Saturday 13th December, and it was a great success! The gallery was mobbed, with people arriving even before opening time. We provided a list of artists who donated their work for the auction, but didn't say who did what, which led to some -at times- wild guesses from members of the public! People bid on pieces they loved, and many bargains were had. 

The place was buzzing a few minutes before the last bids, especially as the clock in the gallery stopped working five minutes before 8pm! What were the odds?! That allowed for an extra five minutes of intense bidding, until all bids were closed. We then had the raffle while some of the staff were sorting out the winning bids, with a tiny assistant helping to pick out the tickets. 

All together, we raised an incredible £5383, which will go to our ReConnect programme. We are extremely grateful to all the artists who donated a piece to the auction, to everybody who came to the event and everyone who bid on an artwork. We couldn't have done it without you, so thank you all!
