Clarke & Son launch online auction to mark Ark Day 2020

TODAY would have been Ark Day 2020 - and while it couldn't go ahead, we are delighted that Ark Our Partner supporter Clarke & Son Solicitors have organised an online auction. 

Darren Lovegrove, marketing and business development manager at the Basingstoke law firm, is a member of the Ark Day Organising Committee and has worked with Superstars Charity Auctions to get the fundraising auction up and running.

Mark Jones, director of fundraising and communications for Ark, said: "Unfortunately, Ark Day 2020 had to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a huge event for Ark Cancer Centre Charity and leaves a big void in the charity's fundraising plans for 2020.

"Clarke & Son are keen supporters of Ark and Ark Day and were looking forward to the gala dinner that would have been the grand finale of the Ark Day 2020 campaign. With the kind and generous support of Superstar Charity Auctions, Darren has organised the online auction to hopefully raise some funds for Ark.

"Massive thanks to Darren, Team Clarke & Son, and Superstar Charity Auctions for their fabulous support, and thanks to everyone who supports by bidding for any of the marvellous lots.

"The auction is running until Friday, July 17 so there is plenty of time for people to take a look at the fabulous prizes on offer. Every pound raised will help Ark to help and support cancer patients and their families."
