Auction in aid of Papyrus charity at Compton Dundon
A local mum is organising a charity auction and an evening of live music entertainment at Compton Dundon next week. The auction is to raise funds but equally to raise awareness of depression in young people and reduce young suicide.
In memory of her brother Alex, who took his own life almost seven years ago aged just 23, Emily Flux from Street is raising funds to support Papyrus, a national charity dedicated to preventing young suicides. “Alex would have been 30 this June. Full of tremendous potential he was already a well-respected young writer, giving selflessly of his talents for projects he believed would help others,” said Emily. “Ppayrus does wonderful work supporting young people going through hard times and I want to carry on in his memory.”
The Auction takes place on 7th June at 7pm at the Meadway Hall, Compton Dundon. Entry at the door is £5 with children free and includes a glass of bubbly. And just in case you are hungry, fish and chips will be available in between bidding.
The auction includes ‘must have’ handbags from Mulberry and Owen Barry, a Les Paul Custom Guitar, a Porsche Cayman driving experience, a designer made oak bench, adventure park tickets, racecourse and theatre tickets, celebrity-signed items and a night in a local hotel for a family of four. And as the saying goes, much much more.
There will be live music from Snappa during the evening and acoustic singer Lee Rahn, while Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers will personally keep order!
