Busby is holding a special auction to support Weldmar Hospicecare who are celebrating their 25thanniversary this year. Hugo Busby’s father in-law, John Greener, was one of the founding members of the charity and was one of the very first patients to use Joseph Weld Hospice in Dorchester. Hugo and his colleagues at Busby wanted to mark the anniversary year by holding a fundraising event in aid of the hospice.
‘The Great Attic Sale’, which takes place on Thursday 4thApril, will see people sell treasures found in their attics or during their winter clear out, with their sellers commission being donated to the charity by Busby. Busby are asking that people thinking of having a clear out and putting their items up for auction to consider putting them into The Great Attic Clear Out to help them raise money for Weldmar.
Hugo Busby said “Putting your items up for auction in this special sale will help raise money for Weldmar at no cost to the seller. They will receive the sale price minus the commission as is the case with all of our sales. The difference with this sale is that the commission will be paid to the charity instead of Busby. What a great reason to have a clear out now!”
Fiona Hansford, Business Development Fundraiser at Weldmar Hospicecare said “A huge thank you to Busby Auctioneers for choosing to support Weldmar with this wonderful event to celebrate our 25thyear. Their support will enable us to continue providing care to patients and their loved ones here in Dorset throughout the community and at our inpatient unit. We rely heavily on support from the local community so we can continue to add life to patients last days when they need us most.” She added “We urge everyone who is thinking of having a clear out to get involved with this event. Selling your items to make money for yourself, while helping a fantastic local cause – it really is a win/win!”
Items that do well at auctions include; railway sets and vintage toys, pictures and prints, vintage luggage and clothing, fine china and glassware, sporting items and fishing tackle, cameras, stamp albums, small items of furniture, silver and jewellery, vinyl records and HiFi.
