From the 16th of March to the 26th of March there will be 6 watch auctions on eBay (starting at 9pm GMT+1) with all proceeds from the auctions going to the children’s charity Bravehearts.
Mark Knopfler is the patron of the children’s charity which is based in the North East of England and was founded to recognise the exceptional courage shown by children who are battling illness or adversity. Parents, nurses, friends and family are able to nominate children so their courage can be recognised. This happens at special awards ceremonies where the children are rewarded by receiving a Bravehearts crystal and a gift of their choice.
We hope there is something which you might fancy owning in these lots, the main thing is fund raising but the winning bidders will get a pretty much unique watch with a great story attached. The auctions will add provenance to the watches too – so worth printing out the photos and details if you win and not forgetting by bidding and winning all proceeds will go to put a smile on a child’s face, what could be better?
If you fancy just donating to Bravehearts, however little, that would also be a great help and very much appreciated.
