The expertise we’ve built up in the corporate entertainment at thousands of cricket matches together with the wealth of contacts we have within the sporting and fundraising worlds in general, allows Lashings World XI Auction Division to offer new clients from all business backgrounds a complete auction service.

Lashings World XI Auction Division is headed up by Roger Dakin, Deputy Chairman of Lashings World XI, entertaining MC and auctioneer alongside Jodie Abrahams as the General Manager, who specialises in the complete running of auction events.

Roger Dakin’s experience in after dinner speaking and as an auctioneer has spanned over 30 years. He’s spoken at hundreds of Benefit and Charity fundraising dinners and functions all around the UK. As a result he’s entertained audiences in pretty much every sort of event from Stringfellows to the Mansion House! His speaking career has lead to him being the proud recipient of the Rotary Club’s - Paul Harris Award, for services to the community.

Jodie Abrahams accomplishments are best summed up by those that she’s worked with; “Having been doing business with Jodie for three years I have found her extremely pleasant and charming but above all very professional. Her attention to detail is second to none and that is why I will continue to orchestrate the majority of my business at No 1 Promotions with her as she moves to manage Lashings World XI Auction Division,” praised Andy Woodman, Director of

Fundraiser for Great Ormond Street and London Air Ambulance commented, “Jodie is such a fun person to deal with and extremely helpful and professional, I am looking forward to continuing our working relationship when she takes on her role at Lashings World XI.”
