GOTA4C charity auction raises fantastic amount!

| December 19, 2020

Our ‘Get on the air for Christmas’ charity auction has ended with an incredibly generous final bid of £1,025.99

The RSGB Board has promised to match-fund the winning bid so we are delighted that we will be able to send such a significant amount to NHS Charities Together  (registered charity no. 1186569).

Roy Bailey, G0VFS won the Lockdown Category in the RSGB’s annual Construction Competition and donated the beautifully-engineered VirusPerpleXed Bug CW Key for the auction.

Roy says, “It seemed only logical and fitting that the story of this key should end with it being donated for auction to give financial support to the NHS. Thank you to all at the RSGB who have been ‘key’ to organising the online auction and everyone who took part in the bidding. My warmest congratulations to the successful bidder.”

Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together says: “Thank you so much Roy for choosing to raise funds for NHS Charities Together in such a unique way.  In addition, I’d like to say a huge thank you to the RSGB for kindly match-funding the winning bid. These funds mean we can continue to help NHS charities to support NHS staff, volunteers and patients at the centre of this crisis.”
