A key feature of our fundraising is the British Deer Society online auctions. These auctions are packed full of countryside activities, getaways, meals out, paintings, accessories and more.

Our next auction is planned for 21st May to 2nd June 2021.


Can you offer a lot?

Our internet auctions are really important to BDS ad raise much-needed funds and we wouldn’t be able to do this without the kind and generous support of the people and organisations who offer us lots.

Could you or an organisation you have links to offer BDS an auction lot?

If you can please download our Internet Auction Donation Form and email this to
