About Our Auction
HOW IT WORKS
1) YOU BID ON AND GET TO WIN THE GREAT ITEMS DONATED - WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THEM!
2) WE USE THE MONEY RAISED TO BUY GIFTS FOR NHS STAFF IN EXETER'S RD&E AND NIGHTINGALE HOSPITALS
3) WE ONLY BUY FROM LOCAL, INDEPNEDENT BUSINESSES TO SUPPORT THEM THROUGH THIS TOUGH TIME
This online auction allows the public to bid on and win some unique items, some of which money cannot normally buy, and all of which have been donated as part of the initiative. Items being auctioned include passenger rides in a Ferrari F40, a children’s ride-on car, an artist’s drawing of your car, Re:Fuel merchandise and much more.
100% of the money raised in this auction will then go towards buying gifts, vouchers and experiences for the staff at Exeter's RD&E and Nightingale hospitals, like vouchers for meals at restaurants, coffee shop gift cards, experiences at local spas, and other similar treats. All of these gifts will be purchased from local independent businesses, supporting them and their employees in their hour of need and helping them survive the incredible strain that Coronavirus has put them under.
All auction items have been provided by fantastic people and businesses in the Southwest - many of which we at Re:Fuel have been lucky enough to work with since we launched last year. So a HUGE thank you to all of you who provided these great auction items:
Exmouth Tyre & Exhaust Centre
The Signature Store

About Southwest Re:Action
“Southwest Re:Action” is an initiative by Re:Fuel, the Southwest's home for automotive enthusiasts. It's a month-long online auction of donated items aimed to fund free experiences and gifts for frontline workers at Exeter Royal Devon & Exeter (RD&E), all purchased from local, independent Southwest businesses which have been hard-hit by the COVID-19 confinement.
During the COVID-19 outbreak, these frontline workers have put their own lives at risk to care for those infected by the virus. At the same time, the lockdown of the economy has damaged many much-loved local businesses, some of whom are days away from bankruptcy. Re:Fuel ourselves, based at Mansell Raceway just outside Honiton, have been unable to open since the outbreak hit, and have been working hard on finding ways like this to interact with and support the community around us.
