CreateTVT, producers of Our Goole magazine, will be raising money for local girl Amelia Wright from Swinefleet by auctioning off their staff to the highest bidder.
Director of CreateTVT Lisa Warrener will be auctioning herself and six of her staff off to any willing bidders in the local area. The winners will be able to allocate one member of staff to undergo a task of their choice, with all funds going towards Amelia’s cause.
We covered Amelia Wright’s story in our April edition, explaining how she is looking for your help after being diagnosed with quadriplegic cerebral palsy. Amelia’s parents Chloe and Christopher Wright, are hoping one day their daughter will be able to walk independently, however, they require additional funds to make this dream a reality.
Amelia is currently receiving fantastic care through the NHS, but not everything she requires is covered under the costs, so we at Our Goole are keen to help out in any way we can.
We are encouraging local businesses to get involved and put their bids towards any one of our seven staff. Each member of staff will give three hours of their time during working hours to the winning bidder, and take part in a task of their choice.
You can take your pick from all our staff, including our Director, Lisa Warrener!
Also, up for bids are our three sales team members! Firstly Lisa, a mother of three who loves getting out and about. Asha, the youngest of seven, is always keen to help out local businesses wherever she can. Finally Kim, who has returned to CreateTVT for the second time. Just keep in mind she is expecting a little one in September!
Two members of our distribution team are also helping Amelia’s cause by putting their self up for bidding. Fitness freak Rachael and Becki who previously worked with Amelia’s dad Christopher are looking forward to your bids! Journalist Joe, who is terrified of heights, is the last member of staff you can bid for.
