The Growing Club are organising an event: an Auction of Promises. This is where donated promises are auctioned off.

This is a wonderful opportunity to give a bit back to The Growing Club.

This could be done by donating a promise, or by bidding for something that money can’t buy!

What’s it for?

A Seed Fund

All money raised from the auction will go towards creating a seed fund, which The Growing Club CIC will manage and use to support women with start-up costs.

There is less support than ever for women on benefits to go into self-employment. Until December 2021, the DWP had the New Enterprise Allowance (NEA) scheme. This provided both mentoring and financial support for those entering into self-employment.

This is now only available in the form of a loan. In our personal experience, many women may be reluctant to take on more debt.


Promises can be anything, ranging from homemade baked goods, pet-sitting to something much larger like a weekend away in a hotel or cottage.

Some examples of donations we have already received include: photography tuition, private hire of a small cinema for an evening, proofreading services, bespoke tailoring services, Will writing and much more.

Everyone who donates a promise will get a free ticket to the event.

All donations are welcome, no matter how big or small.

This will be a fun, social evening as well as an opportunity to bid for unusual things.

See you there!
