Going once…going twice…sold! Article 25 raised almost £9,000 at our Art of Building charity auction.
An inspiring speech from Jack Pringle and our distinguished key note speaker, Piers Gough of CZWG, set the tone for the evening. MP Penny Mordaunt also stepped in to sponsor the night.
With over a hundred people attending, the atmosphere on the Terrace Pavilion couldn’t have been better. There were also a number of people who were new to Article 25, and the night was a great way for us to get our message out to them all.
To be a good auctioneer you need to capture peoples’ attention, convince them to care about what you’re offering and keep an eye on the entire crowd at once. Not an easy job, but our founder Maxwell Hutchinson gamely stepped up, fielding bids of up to £500 for a single piece.
