Online Charity Art Auction - Just Launched!

At the end of last week iHASCO launched an online charity art auction to raise money for Age UK Berkshire. It will be running until Friday 10th July 2020, to allow for some friendly but hopefully competitive bidding on 16 spectacular masterpieces!

Turning the auction from an idea into a reality

With lockdown and social distancing, fundraising has been a particular challenge. The usual office cake sales and charity lunches have not been possible, so the charity committee have had to come up with some more innovative ideas to support our charity partner. iHASCO produces top quality online training courses and one of the things we pride ourselves on is the high standard of our animations and creativity. With such a talented bunch we knew that running an online art auction could be achievable. And what’s more, not only have some of our staff members got creative, it turns out that our clients, family and friends have hidden talents too and have kindly contributed to turn this art auction from an idea into a reality.

How does it work?

The artwork can be viewed here: Charity Art Auction group

There are 16 lots, which you can see by scrolling through the group feed. Once on the page select ‘join’ so you can become part of the group and bid on your favourite pieces. If you want to bid on a particular lot just add your bid amount in the comments underneath. You can read more about how it will work in the ‘about’ section of the page. 

The showcase of talent is amazing and we are incredibly grateful to all of our contributors to help get this off the ground. There is a huge variety of artwork, from digital pieces to watercolour compositions. (You can see them below - in no particular order, and not to scale.)
