Save The Date For An Auction With A Difference

In conjunction with Brighton Chamber of Commerce, charities and local businesses are one again being brought together for the third Time 2 Give ball which is taking place on the Thursday, 6 April 2017 at The Grand hotel, in Brighton.

Time2GiveAs well as fantastic food and entertainment, guests are asked to bid for brilliant prizes with their TIME rather than their MONEY . Prizes include a signed Brighton & Hove Albion football shirt, a Fortnum and Mason hamper, and a yurt for a weekend.

Time 2 Give was born out of a leadership course that Gail Bainbridge from accountancy firm Bainbridge and Lewis, which she attended in 2014/15.

“As part of the course we were asked to think of a project that would benefit our community. Brighton & Hove is a bursting with entrepreneurial small businesses which makes the city an exciting place to do business. As a local business owner myself I’ve always found it really important for me to give back to the local community and to try and make Brighton & Hove not just a great city for business but a great city for everyone. I started volunteering a few years ago and I have met some of the most amazing people, people I may never have met. I can quite honestly say that it has changed my life. I came up with the idea for Time 2 Give and wanted to achieve 2 things:
1. Create a really fun affordable event so that small businesses could get together and celebrate.
2. Build connections between small businesses and local charity and community projects. And Time 2 Give was born.

So on the night, there will be an opportunity to take part in the very unique auction where guests can obtain some really great prizes without spending a single penny – as the bidding is all done in hours. Guests bid their professional time, skilled time or maybe time that links in with a hobby like gardening. Anything from marketing and finance to setting up a new project or even becoming a trustee is accepted.

“I can guarantee that you will meet new and interesting people that you never thought you would meet and that you will have fun and maybe together we can build a better place to live.” said Gail.

As well as the auction there’ll be a three course dinner, dancing into the night and wonderful hosts Guy Lloyd and Sophie Corbett who have also given up their time.
The dress code is FABULOUS.
