Are You Sitting on a Fortune?

This was just one of many prominent headlines that appeared in several newspapers in the region promoting the Malmesbury & Chippenham Osteoporosis Support Group Antiques Valuation Day. North Wiltshire and Cotswold residents were invited to dust off their heirlooms and bring them along to the Valuation Roadshow. The event took place at the newly refurbished and historical Malmesbury Town Hall and featured local valuers Moore Allen & Innocent who were astonished at the turnout.  Auctioneer and Valuer, Phillip Allwood (from TVs Flog It & Bargain Hunt) said he couldn’t promise to make everyone rich, but could promise that people would go away better informed about their treasurers from their own homes, whilst raising much needed funds for a really worthwhile cause at the same time. They were kept extremely busy from 3pm – 9pm, with people flooding in carrying their possessions and generously allowed enough time to offer detailed information on each item.  Whilst waiting patiently, visitors were treated to light refreshments, including wine and nibbles provided by the Malmesbury & Chippenham Group, and were able to browse the National Osteoporosis display stand containing literature and information. Local businesses had donated some wonderful raffle prizes and generous visitors helped to raise the sale of raffle tickets to £79 The event was enjoyed by all and the planning and hard work that went into making this unique event a great success was all down to the Malmesbury & Chippenham Group!
