A luxury Raymond Weil designer watch, a hospitality box for eight people at an Aberdeen FC game and an original framed Howard Butterworth painting are among the star lots up for grabs in the 2010 Northsound Cash for Kids live charity auction which kicks off this Saturday, November 6.
The auction runs until Sunday, November 7, and will be broadcast simultaneously on Northsound 1 at 96.9FM and Northsound 2 at 1035MW.
A team of DJs will be encouraging listeners to dig deep and place their bids for items in the hope of securing them.
The more unusual items going under the hammer include a wedding dress and the services of an electrician for eight hours.
A huge range of other fantastic lots are up for grabs, ranging from bed and breakfast packages at luxury hotels to a stand alone wine cooler.
All of the items have been kindly donated by businesses and individuals across Aberdeen City and Shire and the money raised will be spent locally to help children with a disability or illness or who are living in poverty or deprivation.
Michelle Herd, Cash for Kids Charity Manager, said: “We have a fantastic and diverse range of lots for this year’s auction and this variety will hopefully lead to a great deal of cash being raised to help local disadvantaged children.
“The auction always proves incredibly popular with our listeners and we hope they will once again show a great deal of generosity and support in bidding for some of the fantastic items on offer this year. After all, every penny raised will be used to help better the lives of the most vulnerable children in our city.”
Cash for Kids, Northsound’s listener charity, was set up to make grants towards individual youngsters as well as children’s groups, organisations and projects throughout the North-east. Each year it aims to raise £200,000.
