Auction to aid Sick Kids

posted 23 Aug 2010, 04:43 by David Rintoul

Frontline emergency services are rallying to raise money for the Sick Kids Hospital by staging a charity auction.

A range of prizes will go under the hammer at Karma Nights on Lothian Road on Friday, 27th August, with nurses, firemen and police all bidding for the lots.

Sponsored by Henry J Beans and Bottoms Up Showbar, it is hoped the evening will raise £500 for the hospital. Entry is free between 9pm and 12:30am, with all donations at the door being gifted to the children's facility.

Kim Clark, event organiser, said: "We are delighted to be hosting a fundraiser for the Edinburgh Sick Kids. This is a very worthwhile local charity and we are hoping to raise much more than our £500 target. We would love for any of your readers to come along and join in with all the fun."
