Nordic Garden Buildings & Leekes Charity Silent Auction raises over £2,000 for the NSPCC

Silent Charity Auction

A recent competition run by Leekes in conjunction with Nordic Garden Buildings has come to a successful conclusion for both the winner of a Veranda Summerhouse from Nordic Garden Buildings and for the NSPCC.

Leekes began a promotion back in June from their Melksham store. To enter the competition the entrants of the promotion registered a bid in their ‘Silent Charity Auction’. The winning bid value would then be donated to the NSPCC by Leekes.

Nordic Garden Buildings donated the building, a veranda summerhouse with green window and door sash, whilst Leekes administered the competition and will manage the installation of the summerhouse. The total value of the winning bid would then be donated in full to the NSPCC.

The NSPCC is a charity close to all of our hearts, doing fantastic work supporting vulnerable children across the country. As with any charity, fundraising is instrumental to their ability to deliver their service and support. More information about the NSPCC and their work can be found HERE.

The competition proved immensely popular by attracting ‘bids’ made in-store or via a special FREE Leekes text entry. As you would expect due to the huge response, the final checks and confirmation of the winner took a few weeks to finalise.

Eventually Mr & Mrs Simkins of Chard in Somerset were notified and awarded the superb Veranda Summerhouse. Their winning bid of £2,122 ensured that the summerhouse from Nordic Garden Buildings would be positioned at a home with some of the best panoramic views you can imagine.

Silent auction winners, Mr & Mrs Andrew and Jane Simkins commented, “When we saw the Veranda Summerhouse we loved it! It is a really attractive and beautifully constructed building and we have the perfect spot for it in our garden. We are regular shoppers at Leekes, a store we love as they always have something new to catch our eye – a great atmosphere and team. When we saw this building by Nordic Garden Buildings, and realised that the proceeds of our bid would also help with the excellent work of the NSPCC, we were keen to enter and are delighted to have been the lucky winners.”
