We’re delighted to be able to help promote a charity auction to be held online from September 5th for 5 weeks, which has been organised by Emerald Frog Marketing in Cambridgeshire as part of their fifth birthday celebrations. A range of local businesses have dug deep to help raise money to support five local charitable organisations who perform incredible work: Little Bundles, Branching Out, Froglife, The Liam Fairhurst Foundation and the Wildlife Trust.
All prizes have been kindly donated by the local business community and include a flight for three over Cambridge, a Samsung tablet, various trade services including meals for two, beauty treatments and handyman services and donated products. The auction will open on September 5th and bidders can bid on as many lots as they like to raise money for the five charities.
The charities and projects being supported are:
