Aylesford Newsprint has announced that it has four tickets to the Concert for Diana being held at Wembley Stadium on July 1st this year and is going to offer them to the highest bidder as part of its charity auction on behalf of Great Ormond Street Childrens Hospital.
The tickets which will be available as two pairs will be put up for a blind auction exclusively through MRW, mrw.co.uk and Letsrecycle.com. Anyone interested should make an email bid for a pair of tickets to firstname.lastname@example.org
You can make bids immediately, but no further bids will be accepted after 1pm on Thursday 31st May. The tickets will go to the highest sealed bid and the winning recipients will be notified on Friday 1st June. On notification, the recipients will be asked to despatch their donations and these will be cashed prior to the issue of the tickets.
The reserve price is £180 per pair which is a bargain considering that the concert sold out within hours of going on sale. Anyone taking part in the auction should be aware that the tickets can only be used by the bidder. They cannot be re-sold or transferred and Aylesford Newsprint will ask for a written guarantee that the winning bidder complies with this request.
The Concert for Diana is a public way for Prince William and Prince Harry to mark the 10th anniversary of their mothers death many of the acts including Elton John and Duran Duran were personal favourites of hers. The event will celebrate her life on what would have been her 46th birthday. All net proceeds from the concert will go to the charities chosen by Prince William and Prince Harry, including CentrePoint, Great Ormond Street Hospital and National AIDS Trust.
The Aylesford Newsprint auction will whet the waste industrys appetite for the companys forthcoming charity gala ball and auction, which takes place on 30th June 2007, at London Zoo (in fact it is the evening before the concert!). This event is being held in aid of Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital (GOSH) and hopes to raise much needed funds for the invaluable work and support that the hospital provides.
Over the last 10 years, Aylesford Newsprint has donated in excess of £150,000 to this worthwhile charity.
