Sotheby’s and Mayor of North Down Join Forces for Charity Valuation Day

Do you have forgotten treasures hidden away in your attic or a painting or object that you have always been curious about?  If so, then dig them out and bring them along to Camphill Community Glencraig (signposted off the main Holywood to Bangor Road) on Saturday 8 March. 

A team of Consultants from the world-famous auction house, Sotheby's, will be on hand to value all your items from jewellery and paintings through to toys, china and silver etc … etc.  Sporting Memorabilia Specialist, Graham Budd, and Sporting Gun Specialist, Gavin Gardiner, will also be there to provide valuations in these specialised areas.

Speaking on behalf of Sotheby's, William Montgomery commented "We are delighted to be giving our services on behalf of Camphill Communities NI and the Mayor's other chosen charities."

The event will run from 11am–4pm (doors open at 10.30am).  Entry £10 (includes verbal valuation for three items.  Additional items £3 each).  No booking required.

All proceeds raised by the event will go to support The Mayor of North Down, Cllr Andrew Muir's chosen charities; Camphill Communities NI, Bangor YMCA and the Mark Pollock Trust.

Over the last few months I have been involved in lots of charity events and am delighted that we have had so much support for our fundraising efforts from many people across North Down.  I must commend Camphill Communities for organising this Valuation Day, which promises to be both a unique and incredibly interesting event.  

My special thanks to Sotheby's for donating their time and expertise.  I do hope many people will take advantage of this very cost effective opportunity to have some of their heirlooms valued – you never know what treasures may be uncovered!"
