Unusual Auction Raises Money For BFIM Library Project

BFIM garden Party 2010The recent Building Futures in Malawi Blues and Rock Garden Party went down a storm. Not only did a larger than ever crowd revel in the unique atmosphere that was electrified by some of the best musical talent in Colchester, the charity gift auction was an unusual turn of events. As regular guests of the BFIM music event will know, each year a cake is auctioned off to raise money to improve the lives of children in Malawi, but this year there was a surprise in store for the guests. An employee of sponsors High Position, an Essex based search engine optimisation company, offered themselves up for bidding in return for a night out on the tiles. In good spirit Kerry McCarthy was won by colleague Tobias Bowman and the pair spent an evening drinking fine wine and eating good food, followed by some dancing at a local nightclub. In total the event raised a stunning £5,900 which will go towards the latest project, building a community sports school which includes a secondary school, sports fields, community centre and library amongst many other things.
