A blind auction to win a beautifully restored piece of upcycled furniture is being held to raise funds for South Kent Mind.
Fiona Knapman of La Vie Nouvelle, based in Folkestone, has turned the unloved item of furniture into a stylish piece which can be won by placing bids through a blind auction. Fiona has a wide range of restored and upcycled items in her showroom and said if the donated chair was on sale she would put a price tag of £495 on it.
You can place a bid in this blind auction by emailing your offer to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please add Blind Auction into the subject line. Bids must be sent in by noon on Thursday 21 October. Winners and guests attending the Kent Mental Health & Wellbeing Awards the following night will be able to place their blind bid at the event and see the chair as well as meet its creator. The auction result will be revealed on the night of the awards and on South Kent Mind’s social media platforms the weekend of 23/23 October.
Simon Dolby, Chief Executive of the mental health charity, said: “This is an opportunity to own a lovely piece of furniture as well as raising vital funds for South Kent Mind.”
