Extraordinary lots, extraordinary impact

Online auction, 3—18 Nov
We’ve curated a collection of one-of-a-kind items and experiences to raise funds for the Goldfinger Academy. The proceeds will create more spaces in our craft workshops for local residents on low income and support our career guidance and traineeship programmes for local young people not in education, employment or training.
