We try to help as much as we can, this is how we do it…

Charitable Giving

Some of the staff here at Lots Road Auctions have signed up to make regular donations to their preferred charity. We received a SILVER award for payroll giving!

Catalogue Sale Income

In the last ten years we have donated over £100,000 to numerous charities such as Great Ormond Street, West London Action for Children (WLAC), Friends of the Earth, Peace Direct, Groundwork, National Autistic Society, The Soil Association, The Haven Trust, Trinity Hospice, Honeypot, The Royal Marsden, Tommy’s, Amnesty International, Sustrans, and many many more.

Items Sold on Behalf of Charities

No vendor charges are levied and the full hammer price is paid directly to the nominated charity.

Unclaimed goods (ie. The seller has not asked for his items back or the buyer has decided not to collect his bought and paid goods), are either sold on behalf of Friends of the Earth, given to Betel of Britain or other designated charities.

Personal Note from the Director

During the 1990’s my wife and I decided to give away part of our income to charity, we selected CAF ( Charities Aid Foundation ) and opened a Trust account which allows us to make either a one-off payment or pay regular amounts to charity – CAF handles all the administration and reclaims basic tax rate from the taxman. Recently we supported Charity Bank, the first charity that is also a bank.

If you can spend a bit of your time and find a charity that makes a real difference to individuals and community life, either give them energy i.e. money or volunteer your skills. It is all so rewarding.

Best wishes and thank you.

P.s. If you want to see and hear some charities pitching for funds, log on to TFN, The Funding Network, I guarantee you will enjoy the experience, it's just like bidding at auction.
