h Foundation Announces 2019 Exclusive Festive Online Auction To Support Young Creatives


Today the h Foundation, the charitable arm of h Club London (formerly The Hospital Club) are proud to announce the return of their festive online auction. The auction, which runs for two weeks from midday on Thursday 28th November to midnight on Thursday 12th December, raises money to fund h Foundation's three flagship programmes which help support young creatives. All money raised will be match funded by the Paul G Allen Foundation.

This year's lots include two Elton John Oscar after party tickets, plus a three-night stay in h Club LA; an exclusive Oasis photographic Contact Sheet from the Definitely Maybe album cover shoot shot by Michael Spencer Jones; meet & greet tickets to see Strictly professionals Janette and Aljaz in their new show Remembering The Oscars; two premium tickets to Disney's Mary Poppins and exclusive meet & greet with Charlie Stemp, with a stay at the newly opened Treehouse Hotel, London and Afternoon tea with Gok Wan at Private Members' Club h Club London.

Launched in 2014, the h Foundation was created to promote diversity across the creative industries by providing access opportunities into creative disciplines for underrepresented young people. Funds raised from the auction will support the Foundation's three flagship programmes: Emerging Creatives, which aims to discover, nurture and showcase the next generation of creative leaders in the UK. Each year the scheme works with five creatives (representing music, fashion, film, art and design and theatre and performance) over the course of twelve months, to help them produce original work and get it in front of the right audiences; the Head Start programme, which connects underrepresented young people to training and work opportunities in the creative industries and the Inspire programme, which offers h Club members a change to encourage young people in their local community to pursue a career in the creative industries, by connecting members with volunteering opportunities.

Michael Berg, CMO h Club said:

"Our foundation sets us apart from other clubs. Its vital work is only possible due to the very generous donations we receive throughout the year, enabling us to continue to help those who are under-represent gain an entry into the creative industries. As we end the year our work is of more importance as there are increased demands for our programmes and assistance, a tribute to the on-going success of the foundation."

The auction goes live at midday on Thursday 28th November and closes at midnight on Thursday 12th December 2019. The auction page can be viewed here.
