From Harry Potter, cricketing legends, rowing heroes, tennis legends, rugby superstars, broadcasting stars, comedy gods to film stars. The Charity Oars have met them all. Now they could be yours …
On World Thrombosis Day 2017 we will be holding the Charity Oars Auction
The evening is going to be a celebration of all that has been achieved throughout the campaign. We have met so many inspirational sportsmen, women, film, television stars and popular public figures. We have also had the opportunity to meet and talk with so many members of the public and we’ve been able to raise awareness of the signs, symptoms and treatment of VTE (DVT and Pulmonary Embolism).
The evening is still being planned, but will be made up of a wonderful 3 course meal with complimentary wine, the Charity Oars auction hosted by a famous television host, a silent auction of other Lots, and then entertainment from Elvis and a supporting band.
Tables of 10 are now available. It is also planned that those sportsmen, women, television and film stars who have supported us will also be joining us for the evening’s entertainment.
To book your table for the event please email
If you are unable to attend the evening, we will be accepting bids via email for the 4 main Lots, also bids for the silent auction Lots (details to be posted shortly). Under guidance from the auctioneer and due to the uniqueness of the Charity Oars as a collector’s piece, we will also be accepting phone bids during the evening.
The Auction and celebration evening promises to be a wonderful event and we’d love to have as many people join us. Every pound raised will be donated to Thrombosis UK (formerly Lifeblood the Thrombosis Charity), with their expertise, professional development of guidelines, awareness, treatments and support for those affected, we can and will continue to make a difference.
