We are enormously grateful for the generosity of all the organisations and individuals who have donated goods, services or other items to the auction. As you look through this catalogue, you will see that we have been lucky enough to get the support of former AoC Gold Award winners, AoC Beacon Award sponsors, Colleges and exhibitors at the AoC Annual Conference. Whether you are interested in bidding for a place at next year’s AoC Annual Conference, a fan of Hannah Cockroft, think that Spencer Dale would be an inspiring speaker for your students or fancy trying your hand at a cooking skills course, we hope you will find some items of interest to you. The AoC Charitable Trust hopes that this might be the first of many annual online auctions it will hold to raise money to support your students and we hope that the range of items on offer in this catalogue might inspire your College to offer items in future years. 1.
