An online auction like no other

November 1, 2013

Commencing today, Dianna Snape’s lunch money program is holding an online auction of 45 items, including one-off original works, a guided tour of a Robin Boyd house and Niche magazine subscriptions, to raise money to feed school children.

Dianna Snape is one of Australia’s best architectural photographers and has helped document the building of our country through her images but after a visit to Tanzania, Snape’s life changed.

During her visit to Africa Snape instigated a photography workshop for under-privileged Tanzanian children and became aware of the problem of lack of food for the children. On her return to Australia, Snape has instigated a program to raise 6000 pounds that will feed 47 school children for a year and so lunch money was born.


Through donations of goods and services from friends and associates, Snape has formulated an online auction of 45 items that include one-off original works (many designed or donated specifically for lunch money), architectural prints, handbags and hand-crafted jewelry, a guided tour of a Robin Boyd house and professional and creative services such as a photo and video shoot, speaking engagement, helicopter ride, massage treatment, tax preparation, architectural consultation and Niche magazine subscriptions.

The auction will commence 1 November and conclude 10 November. To join the bidding and help raise funds for such a good cause go to
