However, that doesn't mean that the event wasn't a success. We raised over £350 for Comic Relief, which is great! It was also a great learning experience and a lot of fun, to boot.
What would be ideal for the second event (this is hopefully going to become a tradition)? A more calculated approach, more promotion and crucially, the artists and contributors should feel that the money raised matched their generosity. The total raised was nothing to be sniffed at, but some of the artists involved saw their art go for a lot less than it should have. This is one area which can be worked on.
