This year there’s a new direction for the evening event traditionally held after the main Kent 2020 Vision LIVE exhibition and conference…
To recognise the significant support and contribution the late Kevin Lynes gave to Kent 2020 Vision LIVE we are holding a charity auction in aid of the charity set up in his memory – The Kevin Lynes Apprenticeship Scheme (KLAS). An enhancement to the existing Bursary Scheme for Apprentices, KLAS is a special fund for the benefit of young people, resident in low-income households in Kent, who require funding to benefit from an Apprenticeship Scheme.
Support for the auction has been phenomenal, with over 20 lots donated – many of which money (usually) can’t buy. The right bid can secure some truly unique opportunities including:
- A day making ice cream with Taywells
- Cheese making with Winterdale Cheese
- Behind-the-scenes tour of Chatham Dockyard
- A day working with Kent Police
- Private tour of HadlowGardens with their Head Groundsman
- Group BMX session with a British Cycling coach at the new CycloPark
- Fantastic wine lover’s tour with Chapel Down Vineyard
Plus a range of other great items on offer, including Hornby trainsets, tickets to Kent attractions and events, luxury hampers and even a stand at Kent 2020 Vision LIVE 2014!
To hold together what promises to be a fun and lively evening we are delighted to have the services of Kent’s most famous auctioneer, Clive Emson. In his own eponymous building at the Kent Event Centre, Clive will be running the bidding and keeping everyone in line, adding his own personality and humour to the event.
In addition to the auction, the evening will be a fantastic way for those that were at the event to unwind and reflect on the day and network with their peers from the Kent business community. All this in a relaxed atmosphere, with good honest food and a glass or two of wine.
Tickets cost just £25 + VAT, including dinner and drinks.
