We are excited to announce that 107 Projects has been selected as the recipient of a $100,000 grant, awarded by Sydney Airport in partnership with the Sydney Community Foundation, to fund our first year of running the new Joynton Avenue Creative Centre, Green Square.

The grant is part of Sydney Airport’s Annual Lost Property Auction. Every year, Sydney Airport auctions off it’s unclaimed lost property and donates the proceeds to local charities.

We encourage you to take a look at the items on sale and place a bid. All additional funds raised over $100,000 will be donated to local charities doing great work, so this is an excellent chance to pick up a bargain and support our community while you’re at it.

From designer handbags to watches, jars of honey to bottles of whisky, people leave some weird and wonderful things at the airport, and you’re sure to find some treasure.

The auction runs until October 20. Take a look at the full list of items and make a bid here.
