The English National Ballet has kindly donated us a pair of tickets to their performance of The Nutcracker at The London Coliseum. We thought it would be fun to auction the tickets during Orangutan Awareness Week and raise funds for our ‘Protect Me and My Tree Appeal’.
The tickets are valid on any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between 17th and 31st Decmeber 2009 and are worth £120! (almost US$200!)
We need an opening bid of £40 (approx US$65) to start the auction off…please leave a comment on this post to place your bid. The person who has pledged the highest amount at 10pm (UK time) on Sunday 15th November will be the winner. The winner will then make their pledged donation through this blog’s donation button.
Don’t miss your last chance to see the English National Ballet’s magical production of The Nutcracker this Christmas!
