Bidding closes on Wednesday 12th December at 18:00.

A bottle of House of Commons champagne signed by Prime Minister David Cameron and Skills Minister Matthew Hancock, who kindly donated the item, will be among the goodies to go under the hammer, electronically.

There will also be a bottle of House of Commons champagne signed by the Opposition leader Ed Miliband, donated by the foundation, an Ipad Air (16GB + Wi Fi), donated by EMPRA, a Sony action camera, donated by Tribal and a Pebble E-paper watch, donated by NCFE.

Our charity auction dinner, now in its third year and in partnership with Tribal and NCFE, has become the premier event to attend on the first evening of the Association of Colleges Conference.

This year’s sold out dinner will took place in the ballroom of Birmingham’s five-star Hyatt Hotel on Tuesday, November 19 and raised over £10k.

More than 120 guests enjoyed a sumptuous four-course dinner, followed by exclusive performances from some of FE’s most talented students, including youngsters from colleges in West Nottinghamshire, Rotherham and Middlesbrough College.
