TV favourite Charles Hanson adds value to St Luke’s antiques valuation day
It's time to dig out those neglected heirlooms and dust off those unloved knick-knacks as TV favourite antiques expert Charles Hanson hosts a special valuation day in support of St Luke’s.
The Derbyshire-based star of the BBC’s Antiques Road Show, Flog It, Cash in the Attic and Bargain Hunt will be heading a team of experts hosting the Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers Valuation Day at Sheffield Cathedral on Saturday 12 March.
The event will run from 11.00am to 2.00pm and although valuations are free of charge, there will be a suggested donation of at least £5.00 per person with a limit of three items each – and all the money raised will be donated towards our care for people in Sheffield with terminal illness and their families.
“This is our second year of working with Charles and his team, and our experience last year was that people really did have some unusual treasures simply waiting to be discovered,” said our Community Fundraising Manager Clare Robinson.
Last year’s treasures included a Georgian tea caddy valued at £1,000 and a doll’s house made by a Great War German prisoner, estimated to be worth at least £2,000.
“Go and have a rummage around in your attic and bring along your rare toys, books, Chinese and Oriental objects, decorative arts, modern art glass, furniture, jewellery, silver and collectables,” said Clare.
“This really is a fantastic opportunity to find out if you’re sitting on an unknown fortune, and at the same time you’ll be making a real difference to the lives of our patients and their families.”
