PTA Grand Auction



Plans for the PTA Grand Auction in support of the school’s bid for Science College Status are all but finalised with just one week to go.  The open auction itself will be limited to forty quality items, including: an Original ‘X Box’ David Beckham Soccer Computer Game, signed by David Beckham; tea for two with Lynne Jones MP at the Houses of Parliament; tickets for a prestigious CBSO concert; a forty-six piece dinner service; a green fee voucher for a round of golf for four people at King’s Norton Golf Club; a sitting for a family portrait session; a rucksack picnic set with wine; a Michael Owen signed autobiography; a flight for two in the BRMB Flying Eye; a day’s sailing package in a 44-ft ocean-going catamaran around the Solent; plus a number of  family tickets to various attractions around the Midlands.

In addition to the open auction there will be a large number of instant bargains to be had by all on our “Buy It Now” extravaganza, with opportunities to buy a computer, tumble dryer, porcelain, meal vouchers, records, gift sets, guided walk, champagne, fitness work bench, and hair and beauty products. 

As a result of the magnificent support the PTA has received, we will also be offering a number of items on the night by means of a silent auction, where you can bid a maximum value for an item.  These will be finalised during the interval break.

In order to participate in the auction you will need to buy an official catalogue for the sum of £1.00 and register your details.  This will give you a unique bidding number which will also be entered into a free raffle.  Catalogues will be available upon entry but can be purchased from the school office from Monday, 7, to Friday, 11 April.  Pre-registration, instant bargains and the silent auction will be available from 5.30 pm, when it will be possible to preview items.

The Grand Auction will start at 7.00 pm, and refreshments will be available throughout the evening.

Please give the school and the PTA all the support you can.  If you do not wish to bid, then please feel free to come along and buy a bargain; but please turn up early so as to assist with the registration process.
