The rules:

See Suffolk is part of The Blossom Appeal 2022 Club. We are fundraising for a state-of-the-art £5.3 million Breast Care Centre at Ipswich Hospital, and as part of this, hosting this Festive Silent Auction!

Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity has set up The Blossom Appeal to fundraise to build a breast clinic, imaging department and screening centre all under one roof. By incorporating all elements of breast care, appointments will be made much more efficient and easier for the patient. The new centre is expected to open in 2022, so the appeal needs the help of local businesses and the general public to raise the final figure.

The auction will commence on Sunday 12th December 2021 until midnight on Wednesday 15th December 2021. Every ‘bidder’ will be invited to the Silent Auction event, held on Zoom, at 7pm on Thursday 16thDecember 2021.

During the Zoom event the winners will be announced and if two or more people have bid the same price on an item, then they can either ‘live’ bid at the event or a name will be pulled out of a hat.

Winners will be sent a link (by email or direct message on social media) direct to the charity to donate. Once their donation is received, the prize will be sent to their address, or be able to be picked up from the relevant business.

You must live in the UK and be over 18 years old to enter.
