CMV Action Charity Ball Live Auction


All our fantastic prizes have been generously donated by our supporters and will be auctioned off on the night of the CMV Action Charity Ball, March 8th, by our very own patron, Rufus Hound.  

Follow Rufus on Twitter - 

However, we have had much interest from people unable to attend, so we have opened the auction early to accept proxy bids!

Rufus did a great job raising funds at our last auction so we would encourage you to bid generously if you don’t wish to be outbid on the night or miss out on the opportunity of one of the ‘money-can’t-buy’ experiences on offer.

Thank you & good luck!

How to Bid:

If you are interested in placing a bid on any of the lots, please e-mail confirming that you accept your bid as binding and stating your name, address & telephone number, the lot number and a brief description of the prize, plus your bid.

All bids are binding and we would expect you to honour your bid, should you win the item following the auction.
