1. What is the AoP?
The Auction of Promises (AoP), which has been running successfully at the church for many years, provides a means whereby people are able to offer products or services (‘Promises’) which others can ‘bid’ for over an extended period, without the pressure of an auction room. A generic set of ideas appears under ‘Examples of Typical Lots’, below.
More recently we’ve also introduced ‘Requests’ whereby those who’d like to receive something can request it, with others coming in to satisfy the request, if they’re able and willing (e.g. an airport run, or trip to the Tip).
Generically, ‘Promises’ and ‘Requests’ are termed here as ‘Lots’.
All profits go to our chosen charities (see foot of this page).
