The BFG Dream Jars were auctioned to raise funds for Save the Children and Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.
Lead charity partner of The BFG Dream Jar Trail, Save the Children, auctioned most of the Dream Jars on Paddle8.com, the Online Auction House, at the end of the trail. The auction raised thousands of pounds for the charity – how “splendiferous”! Some jars will also be sold at Save the Children’s private Winter Gala event in November.
About the Online Auction
The BFG Dream Jar Trail online auction took place until 31 August, so bidding has now closed.
The trail has also benefited Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, with four of the jars having been sold to help raise money for its work providing specialist nurses and family support for seriously ill children in the UK.
