Welcome to the Mayor of Reading's charity auction.

Read more ...

The themes of the auction are 'Life after Covid' and 'Community Cohesion'. We are hoping that our timing coincides with life returning to something like normality with hard hit local businesses trading again and local groups being able to meet once more.  We want to remind people of the incredible range of activities and experiences that you can undertake in and around Reading. Bidders are encouraged to enter the spirit of the auction; be brave and do something memorable to celebrate the return to a more normal lifestyle after the restrictions imposed by the pandemic.

The auction will be raising money for the charities I’m supporting during my term as Mayor - No.5 Young People, The Royal British Legion, The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity and The Friends of Reading Abbey. You can find more information about these fantastic groups by clicking on the auction lots with their logo.
