Selby Centre's auction for Global Garden and Global Kitchen projects raises more than £2,400
A two-day, all expenses paid trip to Paris was just one of the auction items that raised more than £2,400 for a Tottenham community centre.
The Selby Centre, based in Selby Road, partnered with Kings Estate Agents to put on the event, on Thursday, November 28, for its Global Garden and Global Kitchen project.
It aims to encourage people to grow and cook their own food as well as provide members of the community with skills that could help them find work.
Twenty-two items were sold at the auction including two flights to Paris which included a two-night stay at the Marriot Hotel which went to David Willis, for the top bid of £340.
Other prizes included a week-long French skiing holiday, a flag signed by the players of Tottenham Hotspur and tour of Capital Radio in central London.
A total of £2,441 was raised during the event which, when added to the amounted already raised, brought the total to more than £13,000.
James Smith, the centre’s communications and outreach officer, thanked the community for supporting the project.
He said: “It was absolutely brilliant. More than 50 people turned up which gave us a fantastic chance to round up the campaign to raise money for this project.
“We really want to thank the more than 170 people who have supported us and I would really like to encourage them all to come see the space.”
