IGRC Online Auction 2018

online auctionIn September, the Italian Greyhound Rescue Charity is running an online auction through its Facebook page. Consisting of four lots, the auction will take place throughout the month and into the first week of October, with the proceeds raised going to the IGRC. Each lot has kindly been donated with great variety amongst the items so there should be something to suit all tastes.

The auction will commence on Monday 10th September 2018 with the opening of the first lot and will close on Sunday 7th October 2018 with the closure of the last lot. Each lot will be open for one week only and one lot will be open at a time. The first lot opens on 10th September, the second opens on 17th September, the third opens on the 24th September and the last lot opens on 1st October. Bids can be placed against the item’s photograph on the IGRC Facebook page and all bids need to be made on the item before the lot closes at 9pm the following Sunday (UK time). The person who places the highest bid before 9pm on the respective Sunday evening will secure the item.

Successful bidders will then be asked to pay for their item and, upon receipt of payment, the lot can either be collected or delivered accordingly. Any postage or delivery costs will need to be paid for by the successful bidder.

Full descriptions of each lot will be provided via the IGRC Facebook page alongside accompanying photograph(s). The Charity is incredibly grateful to those who have donated these items, all of which are wonderful lots and will no doubt generate much interest. The IGRC hopes that existing and new Friends of the Charity will join in and support this online auction, helping raising money for the IGRC.
