At The Westfield Centre Derby
28th – 29th November 2013 18.30 – 18.30 (24 Hours +)

James Lewis, twice winner of The Auctioneer Of The Year award, is to attempt to set a world record by holding the longest auction ever held by a single auctioneer, in aid of charity. The auction is to take place at Westfield Centre, Derby on the 28th and 29th November 2013 from 18.30 – 18.30 (24+ hours). All of the proceeds are to be donated to participating charities: Tiny Tim Trust, Victim Support, Crich Toy Library, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust, The Born Free Foundation, Lion Roar, Derby Air Cadets, Annabel’s Angels, Victim Support, Diabetes UK.

The auction is to be highly publicised and supported by local press, TV and radio and will be run in the same way as a usual Bamford’s auction, the only difference being that it will run for a minimum of 24 hours and will offer several bidding options including online bidding on the saleroom.com.

This will be a unique fun-filled event and you are invited to participate. You will, of course, benefit from the publicity surrounding the event and the inclusion of your company name in the lot description and your logo in the online catalogue.

The organisers require a minimum of 2,000 lots. These may be items, talents, services or experiences of a value of £10 and over. Vouchers to be exchanged for goods from Derbyshire based traders will be most welcome. In short anything which may be interesting, useful, valuable, novel or just fun will also be most welcome.

We also require volunteers to act as porters, admin staff, and computer and telephone operatives. Applications for these roles can be made to the contact stated below. Traders, trades people, performers and businesses may view this an opportunity to advertise and that is quite acceptable.
