Grand total!

You’ve raised…


for the Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan appeal.

Thank you so much. You’re amazing.

The original plan was to email the highest bidders with all the information they need to finalise their bid, but first we’re going to put the details up on the site to try to cut down on admin as much as possible.

We’ll keep updating this site with information to try to make the next steps easiest for everyone.

Donors – once the bidders have done their bit, we’ll be in touch with you with the information about how to contact them and/or send off your item.

* This may change once some bids have been finalised and we’ve had a chance to double-check our sums!
