Matthew Project launches Norfolk charity auction 

The Matthew Project is going live with an online charity auction tomorrow night. Sarah King, Fundraising and Events Officer at The Matthew Project, explains what is to be won – both for bidders and for the wider community.

After months of preparation, we are thrilled to announce that our online fundraising auction goes live at 8pm tomorrow evening (Friday October 23). We have a superb selection of well-considered packages, with something to appeal to all tastes. All we need now are bids.

Auction items include a ski break, a supertrack car day, a table for two at Marco Pierre's London restaurant, family fun days out, a round of golf, a photography portrait session, a Ronnie O'Sullivan signed snooker cue and a Mike Tyson signed glove.
You may have seen in the EDP this week: ‘It can happen to anyone: City’s drug death rate among highest in country.’ Please remember the importance of the work we do with our community in the battle against substance misuse. Funds raised from this event will allow us to continue our life-saving work at a time when we are needed more than ever.
Our awesome range of lots are donated by 24 of Norfolk’s finest independent businesses and individuals. They are available for you to place bids via your mobile phone. We are sure you’ll find a gift to remember for you, your family and loved ones.
