On Sunday 22nd June lesbian women of all ages, shapes and sizes will be auctioned off to raise funds for the Manchester-based Lesbian and Gay Foundation (LGF).

The event will take place at the Vanilla bar in the city’s gay village, and the foundation is seeking volunteers for the auction.

Highest bidders from the evening will be sent on a date the following week with the lesbian of their choice to either a restaurant, the cinema, a bowling alley or one of many other pre-arranged options, all organised by LGF but donated by external supporters.

The night will also include a number of other items available for auction and raffle from adult toys to hotel stays and shop vouchers.

Rachel Bottomley, LGF Fundraising Officer commented:

“This is the first time we’ve ever held a fundraiser like this.

“It’s intended as a fun and lighthearted way for women to make new friends and raise some much needed funding along the way.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Vanilla and the search is now on for lesbians who would be willing to get involved with the night’s event.”

Tickets for the night will cost £3 and will soon be available to buy from both Vanilla bar and the Lesbian and Gay Foundation.

Rachel added:

“All the money raised from the night will go straight back into LGF’s services for lesbian and bisexual women in the North West such as our new sex resource and free safer sex information booklet for LB women.”

Any women interested in volunteering themselves and raising money for charity at the same time should contact jeni@lgf.org.uk or call 0161 235 8006 to register their interest and obtain further information.
