There will be a small fun auction where Ozgen will auction his private lesson (max. 2 people), a bottle of Champagne and my next 5 weeks course. The prices start from less than half of the value so you could get yourself a bargain!!
Thank you for those who have supported this cause. We have manage to raise nearly £900 from this event.
