Our bees produce just one in-demand honey crop every year and every September we celebrate the annual Honey Auction, in which the first jar of honey from each London hive is auctioned with all proceeds going to Bees for Development. This is an online auction.
The auction will launch online on the 11th October 2023 and ends on 10th November 2023.
The mechanics of the raffle are very simple: by making a minimum donation of £5 to Bees for Development on https://www.beesfordevelopment.org/fortnums, each entry will go into a prize draw to win a bespoke hamper worth over £650, which includes a jar of our Piccadilly Honey, 227g, a Sterling Silver Honey Pot Lid, a Gold Plate Honey Drizzler, an Eau de Nil Hive Honey Pot, a Four Seasons Honey Candle, a Honey Bee Decoration, a Salted Caramel Honeycomb Bar, a Ginger & Honey Filled Bar, a Honey Bee Hot Water Bottle, Tea & Honey Cocktail Bitters, Scottish Honey Gin, Fortnum's Bee Cocktail Picks, 2x Beehive Design Mugs and a Fortnum's Bee Cocktail Spoon.
The winner is also able to nominate five friends, and each will receive a jar of one of the following: Royal Albert Hall honey, Hoxton Docks honey,Bermondsey/White Cube honey, St. Pancras Honey and Somerset House honey.
The winner will be drawn at random on 12th November 2023. We endeavour to notify the Winner by email within two days of the prize draw ending.
