I wanted to share a fundraising project that we’ve been working on. If you don’t follow us on social media, you may not have seen that we’ve put together an auction to raise money for Tommys on Instagram.

The fundraising focus has now shifted to the London Landmarks Half in March and we are approximately £1,500 away from our £5,000 target. The aim was to hit this by Leo’s second (second… how?!) birthday, but in reality we will just have to get there when we get there.

So, Monday 2nd October – Sunday 8th October we have a host of prizes to bid on from a range of incredible small brands.

Please come along and give us a follow, and bid! Please feel free to share and let your friends know too. We’ve never done anything like this before, but here’s hoping it’s a massive success!

Here are some more details that I shared this week…


Amazing! We have over 40 prizes on offer, over four nights! Please, please share with your friends and remember to check back every night for more prizes (and to make sure you haven’t been outbid!) once the auction opens.


Pop over to our preview event on Facebook later tonight to see more details on what’s on offer.

The plan is as follows…

Sunday, October 1st – 8pm – FINAL PREVIEW

Monday, October 2nd – from 8pm – Jewellery, Clothes, Pins and more.

Tuesday, October 3rd – from 8pm – Cards, Gifts, Prints and more.

Wednesday, October 4th – from 8pm – Home Interiors

Thursday, October 5th – from 8pm – Baby & Remembrance

Sunday, October 8th Midnight – AUCTION ENDS on all lots.

Please bid generously – all money is going to @tommys_thebabycharity for our #LeoForTommys fundraising. Thank you to all the shops and people who have donated 🙌🏼

**I’m still happy to accept donations, just drop me a DM**


Open to the UK only. Please comment to place your bid. Bidding starts on Monday 2nd October, 8pm on Instagram. First bid must match or exceed the starting bid. Bids to be made in £ increments. The auction ends for all posts at Midnight on Sunday 8th October. Highest bidders will be contacted within 48 hours after the auction ends to arrange payment and delivery. Please make your payments within 48 hours otherwise it will be passed to the next highest bidder.

All proceeds to go to Tommys, the Baby Charity in memory of our son, Leo Phoenix and money to be paid direct to our fundraising pages, which will be sent upon winning.

Thank you for taking part, and please, please share!
