Sports memorabilia is ideal for fundraising auctions which can be combined with fetes, trivia nights, dinner dances or balls.

The first stop is always your own local network. Who knows who? Are they prepared to donate a signed item? Is it worth framing?

Specialist memorabilia companies can take the hard work out of locating that ‘must-have’ item, often providing items with a reserve attached that you can include in your auction.
