Call for Charity Prizes

Each year, ILMC raises a significant sum of money for our chosen charity, which this year is Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders, the world's leading emergency medical humanitarian aid organisation.
 
To help with this fundraising, ILMC is looking for prizes that can be won during Sunday afternoon’s Nikos Fund Prize Draw, or that can be bid on via our closed eAuction. Do you have anything you’d like to contribute? It could be anything from tickets and experiences, to memorabilia or more. Email lou@ilmc.com with details.

And don’t forget to be in the room on Sunday 6 March at 14:45 for a chance to win one of them!
