This Christmas we have opened our very first Christmas Auction, with some very exciting prizes this year. This is your opportunity to pick up a unique Christmas present for a loved one whilst helping out Safe Passage at the same time.
By making a bid or entering a prize draw you’ll be helping us keep the pressure on Government to fill the remaining 250 warm homes waiting for children under the Dubs scheme, and provide safety to the most at-risk child refugees across Europe right now. You can see all our prizes here, or click on individual prizes below.
The auction will run Wednesday 20th December 2017 at 9pm – so all winners will be announced before Christmas. Make sure you get your bids in.
Thank you to all of our wonderful prize givers!
