The Global Shine Foundation raised £18,000 at a charitable auction held at the Fulham Reach Marketing Suite on Monday 29 February, 2016. Sponsored by Sotheby's International Realty UK, the auction raised money to support its efforts to improve gender equality around the world.
The auction, hosted by the Global Shine Foundation's founders Tiffany Kelly and Denis Murphy, presented luxury lots including a Banksy masterpiece entitled: Applause an award-winning garden design, original artworks and a crystal-encrusted 3-Dimensional mask, designed and created by artist Charlotte Tiley.
The funds raised will go towards supporting the Global Shine Foundation's world-class training programmes, coaching and mentoring, and entrepreneurial schemes. These initiatives aim to empower women and improve gender inequality in the work place.
