On Saturday February 16, the staff at Subline in St James Street, organised their first Big Staff Auction. Eight members of staff were auctioned off to the highest bidder by auctioneer Wilma Fingadoo. The winner of each ‘lot’ won a meal for 2 with their ‘prize’ at one of seven venues across the city.

With the bids, donations and a collection bucket on the door the event raised an amazing £800 to be split equally between THT and the Sussex Beacon.

Subline Manager, Steve, send his thanks to all those who came on the night to bid in the auction and support the (extremely nervous) bar staff.

He said:

“We weren’t sure how this event would go, but it ended up being a huge success. We hope to roll this out as an even bigger event in the future”.

“Thanks must go to the venues who donated meals for the winners; The Chilli Pickle, The Camelford Arms, The Bedford Tavern, Oregano’s, 112 Church Street, Harvester and Smokey’s. We’re also really thankful to Andy Tull for his generous cash donation, as well as those who supported us with the extra technical equipment used.”

“We hope that the winners will enjoy their meal and that those who got out-bid will search the back of their sofa before the next event”.
