Auction Week – Other ways to get involved
Missed out on your favourite item from the GWT auction, or having a clear-out? Across the country, supporters are buying and selling items to benefit The Trust.
Whether it’s selling unwanted clothes through eBay, auctioning a family heirloom through a local auction house or upcycling and crafting items through Facebook marketplace, there are multiple ways to help us fundraise and help Gurkha veterans and their families.
You can list items to sell, selecting the percentage you wish to donate to The Trust and eBay will ensure the money reaches us. You can also donate when you buy an item through eBay.View our supporters’ live eBay items
For valuable antiques or artwork, it may be better to sell with your local auction house. Many will reduce or waive sellers fees if you mention it benefits your favourite charity.
