The Big Hoot owls went under the hammer on 15 October 2015 at The Big Hoot auction sponsored by Vodafone.
We are genuinely humbled by the overwhelming response to our beautiful owls, and are thrilled to have smashed our target by raising the incredible sum of £508,035!
The money raised from the auction will support Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity’s £3.65m Star Appeal. This appeal will enable us to create a first of its kind, a Rare Diseases Centre in the UK specifically for children. It will provide co-ordinated care, treatment, support and most importantly hope to children and families living with a rare or undiagnosed condition.
Fieldings Auctioneers Ltd, Fine Art and Antique auctioneers of Stourbridge, took charge of the auction proceedings and helped the owls find their perfect permanent perch!
The auction raised £530,835 in total, with £15,000 for G’owl’d by Temper going to Edward’s Trust, and £7,800 for Fleet and Free going to Birchfield Harriers.
So thank you again – we simply couldn’t have done it without you. We wish all of our owls the best of luck in the next part of their journey!
