We've had a fantastic response to the VW Action auction in previous years. In 2009, Brad's Cancer Foundation achieved a major milestone, handing over a cheque to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Every year traders and individuals donate or make great items for the auction, and whilst it is quite gratifying to know that on the day, they made a good price, we must thank everyone who has had any involvement in supporting Brad's. These donations at the auction, the sales from the Brad’s trade stand, raffles, trashing the 'Gangster' car at VW Action 2009, the Koolest Kroozes and the many other various activities, meant that to support a dedicated teenage unit in Nottingham Hospital, the aforementioned cheque was for the staggering sum of £100,000.00. With 2012's JOGLE 4 BRAD'S CHARITY MOPED RUN and other great fundraising activities, let's hope another huge cheque can soon be handed over. It would be great if the auction at this year's VW Action event could see a record amount raised.
Massive thanks are due to the generous traders, private individuals and in fact everyone who has provided items to be auctioned or bid on them. We hope that this year is another memorable one.
Certainly the generosity of many of the VW Action traders cannot be faulted, as the quality of the items offered are always exceptional. Whilst there are always bargains to be had, we would also like to salute the generosity of many bidders each year who for some items pay 'over the odds' because it is for such a good cause.
In previous years several companies and individuals customised toilet seats, toolboxes and all manner of items to be auctioned. For 2017 we are asking donors to create any unique item. We would like the donated item to reflect you and your interests, as well as to appeal to the VW Action buying public. Perhaps you can incorporate a 'Mask' theme?
If you are big into skateboarding, maybe a custom decorated or even custom built deck... if you are a musician, maybe a customised instrument - basic ukuleles are pretty cheap. If you have great artistic skills, maybe a piece of VW inspired art. Whatever floats your boat. Details here.
