Bid now to get yourself Under The Influence for charity

Integrated agency Iris is running an event appealingly called Under The Influence on April 12. Even more appealing is that it’s taking place in five pubs around Borough Market.

During the event, the pubs will be renamed as The Progress Bar (The Market Porter), The Left & Field (The Wheatsheaf), The Insight Tavern (The Southwark Tavern), The Climax and the Curtains (Balls Brothers) and The Craftsman (The George). Between 2pm and 6pm, all will be serving Under The Influence ale and each will be hosting a speaker, including Ivan Pollard from Naked and Manumission founder Andy McKay.

However, The Left & Field will have probably the most exciting speaker of the lot: you. If you win the charity auction on Ebay that is. That’s right, you can bid for the chance to get yourself heard at the event – stick item number 170093955691 into Ebay’s search bar, make your bid and cross your fingers. If you win, you also get to pick the charity the money goes to.

What greater incentive do you need for getting under any influence?
