On Friday 1st July Former Glory Furniture will celebrate their first year of business with an auction in support of Devon Air Ambulance. The auction will be led by celebrity auctioneer, BBC Antiques Roadshow Expert, Marc Allum and will be held at the company property in Totnes.
Former Glory Furniture are seeking local businesses to sponsor their auction in support of Devon Air Ambulance by donating great auction lots of varying values; from gifts or tickets to experiences or treats which could include complimentary meals, beauty or spa treatments or a stay at guest accommodation. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Devon Air Ambulance.
Naomi Cunningham and Sam White took on ownership of Former Glory Furniture, an antique and vintage furniture business based in Totnes, in summer 2015 and have been so well supported by the local community they decided they wanted to give something back that would benefit the whole community.
Despite there being many worthy local causes, Former Glory Furniture chose Devon Air Ambulance as the beneficiary of their auction as it is a crucial service which relies on the generous donations of the people, communities and businesses of Devon.
All businesses that donate will be included in the auction catalogue as well as receive recognition during the event and social media engagement where appropriate. For those businesses that choose to offer a more generous gift, they will receive the relative recognition in the promotional material and social media channels.
Naomi said “We look forward to hosting a light-hearted and entertaining evening with our celebrity guest, auctioning off lots kindly donated to raise money solely for Devon Air Ambulance. Our invited guests will receive a warm welcome with drinks and appetizers whilst being encouraged to support the Trust and sponsoring businesses will of course be recognised too.”
Devon Air Ambulance’s Fundraising Director Caroline Creer stated “This sounds like a great event; we hope that Former Glory Furniture are successful in their plight to secure the necessary sponsorship to make the event a brilliant triumph. We are so grateful for the support of all the communities and businesses in Devon and this event really demonstrates a brilliant cohesion.”
