Online auction launches

23 March 2019
An amazing array of prizes are on offer as Martin House launches an online auction ahead of its Glitter Ball.

From exclusive seats at big name gigs including Michael Buble, Rita Ora, Little Mix and Shed Seven to a McLaren driving experience, there are nearly 50 lots to bid on.

Every year at its Glitter Ball – which takes place at Rudding Park in Harrogate – has both a live and silent auction, but this year Martin House is giving everyone the chance to bid on its silent auction lots online.

Sara Cracknell, event fundraiser at Martin House, said: “We’ve got some incredible prizes to suit all budgets, like designer handbags, a group gin making experience – even a Red Arrows flying suit.

“There are such a wide variety of prizes to bid on there’s bound to be something you’d like to win.”

Other prizes include a meal for two at celebrity chef Tom Kerridge’s Michelin-starred pub The Hand and Flowers, tickets and travel to see Wicked in the West End, a variety of overnight stays at luxury Yorkshire locations, hospitality tickets for an England vs Pakistan cricket game and a diamond ring.

Sara added: “You could win a special prize and enjoy a truly memorable experience in our auction, and at the same time help the children and young people we support to enjoy their own special moments at Martin House.”

The online auction is live from Tuesday 23rd April until 10.30pm on Friday 10th May and you can bid online for lots at
