Auction of Promises and Treats

Aylsham High School celebrates each year 11 group leaving school with an event called The Prom to mark the end of their time with us. This takes place this year on Saturday 29th June 2024 at Mannington Hall. The ticket price covers all the basics such as venue, marquee and food & drink.

However, we raise funds throughout the year to enjoy the extras such as chocolate fountain, decorations, hire of dance floor, etc which make the evening the special and significant event we hope it is for our students.  We also like to donate a portion of funds raised to our designated charity, Water Aid, where possible.

Our final major fundraiser this year is An Auction of Promises and Treats to be held at the High School on Tuesday 30th April 2024  at 7 pm.

We would very much like to invite you to come along and support us while bagging a bargain! We have had many generous donations of Lots from the local community and far beyond.  Below is a list of some of the attractions on offer at the auction. Refreshments will also be available to accompany the delight of a winning bid!  Many thanks to Mr Tom Corfield of Arnolds Keys for agreeing to be our Auctioneer for the evening.

We would be delighted to hear from you if you are able to donate a service or treasure to the list of Lots.
