Virtual Auction of Promises – Lent 2021

22nd February – 22nd March 2021

We are looking forward to 2021; as covid lockdown struck at the beginning of Lent in 2020 at St Barnabas we were not able to complete our Lent Lunches which were in aid of Zink Employability. Lockdown has meant that none of the other fundraising and social activities of the Church have been able to take place either.

With your help, we intend to hold a Virtual Auction of Promises which will take place during Lent 2021. We are raising funds which will be split equally between Zink Employability (which includes the High Peak Food Bank covering Hope Valley) http://www.zink.org.uk/ and our own Church funds http://www.achurchnearyou.com .

We invite all Bradwell residents to offer promises for this virtual auction. The promise you make could include cake baking, car washing, gardening, language lessons, going for a walk with someone or any other service or activity which can be delivered in a socially distanced manner. If you are able to offer a service or goods to be auctioned would you please collect a form from the back of Church, Post Office, The Bakehouse or High Peak Heating, or look online on Facebook and achurchnearyou.com. The Church is open Wednesday and Sunday. Please let us know what you can promise before Sunday 17th January.

A list of all the promises for auction will be posted on http://www.achurchnearyou.com and Facebook Bradwell Hope Valley Community Forum and on posters round the village, in February to invite everyone to bid on them.
