The Busfest Charity Auction
The BUSFEST CHARITY AUCTION is a hugely popular part of the BUSFEST weekend.
Traders are invited to donate items for the Auction. These items can be viewed at the Charity Auction Location within the AVON HALL. Standard AUCTION Rules will be applied during the Auction.
This year’s nominated Charity is Guide Dogs.
Guide Dogs is a working name of The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association.
Registered Office: Hillfields, Burghfield Common, Reading, Berkshire RG7 3YG. A company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (291646) and a charity registered in England and Wales (209617) and Scotland (SC038979) for the Blind Association.
Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss that has a significant impact on their daily lives. By 2050, there could be nearly four million. When someone loses their sight – Guide Dogs is here to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well.
We rely on donations from the public to keep our life-changing services running. In 2016, less than 1% of our income came from government funding.
What money can buy
• £5 could support a working guide dog for a day
• £25 could buy a white guide dog harness
• £140 could buy a Starter Kit for a new guide dog owner,his nominated charity of the year.
We wish them every luck with achieving their fundraising target of £5,000 which would pay for the breeding and containing everything they need to start a life with their new guide dog
We’d like to say a big thank you to Busfest for choosing us, as their nominated charity again for 2019. This would help towards giving a person living with sight loss eight years of freedom and independence.
