Auction for Aid, an annual auction of jewellery in aid of the charity Help Refugees, launches this weekend.

Founded by Ghazal Saremi of Leeds-based jewellery brand, Soremi, Auction for Aid launched three years ago and to date has raised over £80k for the charity.

This year the designer is hoping to smash last year’s auction total of £45K.


Each year Saremi calls on renowned jewellery designers to create unique pieces for the auction. This year pieces have been donated by Lucy Jade Sylvester, Polly Wales, Yen Jewellery and Shimmell and Madden.

Alongside the auction Saremi has also created sterling silver necklace inspired by Help Refugees’ logo. 20% of the profits of each necklace sold will go directly to the charity.

Ghazal Saremi hosts the auction online over the space of a week using the Auction for Aid Facebook page.

This year the auction will start on Monday October 8 and end Sunday October 14. All proceeds will go to the charity.
