Auction of Promises List

Starston Jubilee hall is holding an Auction of Promises in the hall on Friday 13th October at 7.30. The full list of 60 items is below. Bidding tickets cost £2.00 each on the door and entitle you to one free drink.

If you would like to bid for something but can’t come on the night then you can send an email bid for your chosen item to Dee McCall  by Thursday 12th October at the latest. Please state the item, its reference number and your maximum bid. By sending an email bid you are agreeing to pay £2.00 to Starston Jubilee Hall for your bidding ticket, plus the cost of any successful bid.

Some items have a guide price attached but please be aware that the auction might push these higher.

Please tell all your friends and come and support us. We are trying to raise money to replace our two marquees which are no longer fit for purpose.
