Charity Auction for Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund

I can only imagine what it must be like to be caught in the horrific floods Cumbria experienced on 19th November. As we know from previous floods, lives will be devastated and it will be a long time before those affected will be back in their homes.

To help raise funds for Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund I am organising an auction to be hosted on Bambino Goodies. The idea is to create a series of auction ‘lots’ of varying levels to sell in a silent auction. We will then generate interest with our blogs, through social media and the press. I hope to have the Auctions ready to run by next Saturday.

This idea only came about this evening so please forgive me for not having all details ironed out!

If you would like to help with, donate to or write about the auction please leave a comment with your email address (fill in the email field so it doesn’t go public) and I will email you with details. Members of British Mummy Bloggers can join the discussion here.

Update: I have set up an email account specifically for this auction: cumbriafloodauction [at!] googlemail.com. I will post about the finer details of this campaign by this afternoon (Sunday). Update and request document is now available here. Thank you all for your generous offers of support. xx

    I’d love to write about it. I could also contact the company I work for to see if they could donate something.

    I’m on board! Please send me some suggested wording (including all the great PR these companies will get) and I’ll send to every PR contact I have. Wonderful idea Kat!

    Hi there. Yes, count us in. And I do some writing for a company who’d love to donate something. Let me know. And well done for organising, it sounds a nightmare for them all.

    I have a lot to donate and will also flag up the auction on LivingwithKids – please let me know who to send the lot info to.
