Winter Appeal Radio Auction

35-litre fridge-freezer for 4WD, from ARB Hobart


We are teaming up with 100 Tasmanian businesses and 7HOFM for an all-day radio auction of 140+ items on Thursday 20th of June, to raise funds for the Winter Appeal.

The auction will run for six hours, from 9am to 3pm, and bids can be placed by phoning 6216 1000 on Thursday 20th of June. Items will be auctioned in six lots of 24 items, with one lot auctioned every hour. You can bid for any item in that lot during that hour, but not before or afterwards. Bidding will close at 5 minutes to the next hour.  Once the hour is over, we move onto the next lot of items, and all winning bidders will be contacted by phone. You can view the six lots here – the red line is the divider between lots.

The signature auction item, a handmade pair of 18-carat white gold earrings with Tasmanian blue sapphires, is being auctioned *NOW* – you can place your bids through the 7HOFM website here.

Scroll down for the full list of auction items, and information about the signature earrings from Metal Urges Fine Jewellery, or click the button below to check out our Facebook photo album. 


Hobart City Mission’s Winter Appeal raises funds for our Emergency Assistance program, which provides food, clothing, bedding, furniture, professional advice, and emotional support to those who are experiencing hardship, including homelessness.  

It is people like Maree* (right), who come to Hobart City Mission for assistance when they have no other options. 

But we don’t have enough resources to meet the growing need for Emergency Assistance in Hobart, and the housing and homelessness crisis is only making the situation worse. 

Without your support, we will be forced to turn away families and children, so please tune your radio in to 7HOFM (101.7FM) on Thursday the 20th of June, and bid for any item(s) of your choice from the list below…
