Upcycled Kids Chair Charity Auction at Bubble London

Out of the Dark is a charity organisation that teaches disadvantaged young people work ethics and work skills, skills that will be the tools to help them become resilient, confident and able in all areas of their life. To support Out of the Dark, Bubble London decided to host a charity auction.

The Out of the Dark charity has received an enormous amount of press -but that alone does not convert into fundings to continue their important work for young people.

To raise money for this amazing charitable social enterprise, Bubble London invited favourite bloggers and creative friends to each design and upcycle 11 chairs, to be auctioned at the London kids trade show.
