SAND 70’s Disco and Celebrity Auction

On Saturday 29th November SAND are planning a Celebrity Charity Auction and 70’s Disco at the Darwin Community Centre in Shrewsbury. Around 30 items are up for auction, the majority celebrity endorsed. Items include Stephen Fry’s autographed tie, a Carol Ann Duffy handwritten, signed & framed Christmas Poem, autographed books by Graham Norton, Sandi Toksvig and Sarah Waters, autographed DVD from Matt Lucas well as items from actress Heather Peace and presenter Clare Balding. Other items include festival tickets, Christmas Hampers, a canal boat trip, a vintage car trip and a weekend break to name a few more.

Following the auction there will be an authentic 70’s disco using only original 70’s vinyl records – none of this modern digital stuff!! The DJ will also be authentically from the 70’s! There is also a full bar and food is available too.

Money raised will be used to support the work that the Shrewsbury based group Safer Aging No Discrimination do. SAND has been formed to raise community awareness and help local authorities, care providers and carers to address the fears and discrimination that may be experienced by older LGBT people and carers by overcoming prejudice in care, stopping negativity, protecting those who are vulnerable and encouraging openness about specific LGBT needs.

Tickets are £10 (£7 consession).
