Stays at Norfolk Holiday Homes Auctioned to Raise Funds for Ukraine

Norfolk holiday homeowners are auctioning stays at their homes to raise money to support Ukraine, facilitated by a local letting firm and charity Street Child.

Established in 2008 by Norwich local Tom Dannatt, Street Child is a charity focused on the safety and educational empowerment of children. It has recently partnered with Norfolk Cottage Agency to raise funds for its Ukraine Crisis appeal to help children and families suffering in the war-torn country.

Norfolk Cottage Agency is run by Alex and Tom Atkinson, who set up the letting firm recently after moving from York. Commenting on her contributions to Street Child’s work to help Ukrainian people, Alex said: “We are very lucky to work with such generous holiday home owners in Norfolk who have offered their homes for the auction.” She has high hopes for the auction, stating: “With the support of the public, we would be ecstatic if we could raise close to £10,000 as it would be a huge support to the charity’s efforts on the Ukraine and Poland border.”

People can bid to stay at a huge range of properties in Norfolk, from traditional cottages to glamping experiences across multiple locations, such as Sheringham, Brancaster, Cromer, Holt, Blickling, Snettishman, Stiffkey, and Kelling Heath. Beyond Norfolk, there are also many other exciting locations on offer, such as Corfu, Paris and Cornwall.

Proceeds from the auction will go to Street Child’s charity appeal. Some of the money raised will go to Posmishka, a women-led charity supporting people fleeing the Donbas region, and Bright Kids, a Kiev-based charity which supports families with children with disabilities during this difficult time.

The auction ran until Sunday 24 April.
