Event description
We will be raising money through a fun auction event on Thursday August 20th and splitting it equally between the groups mentioned below.

About this Event

You can help by donating to the auction whether it be a skill or an item, by coming along and bidding on the evening of the 20th and/or making a donation in support.

We are staff from the Centre for International Training and Education (CITE) at the University of Leicester. As a University of Sanctuary we believe in supporting Sanctuary Seekers wherever we can and COVID19 has hit the most vulnerable in refugee camps and those asylum seeking students studying at the University of Leicester who have found themselves isolated and often short of the tools needed to study online. We aim to support our own Sanctuary Seekers through financing much needed equipment and those stuck in Greece through the organisation 'Love without Borders for refugees in need'. You can find out more here:

Please help us to make this event a success and help those most in need. Every penny we raise will be used directly to support those who need it, there are no administration or other hidden costs.

Auction Terms and Conditions

All bidders wishing to participate in any auction must first register their details on Eventbrite and thus agree to these terms and conditions.

The organisers do not assume any risk, liability or responsibility for the authenticity or the authorship of any property identified in any auction catalogue or description.

All property has been gifted to the organisers to sell at auction to raise funds for charity. Details of the charities that will benefit from the funds raised at auction are listed in the auction catalogue and available on request.

The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re-offer and resell the lot in dispute.

If the auctioneer determines that any opening bid is not commensurate with the value of the property, he may reject the same and withdraw the property from sale, and if, having acknowledged an opening bid, he decides that any advance thereafter is insufficient, he may reject the advance.

Payments for purchases must be made in Sterling via GOFUNDME within 14 days of the Auction.
