Take part in 'Flog It' style valuation day while raising funds for local charities

Residents / 13 Feb 2018

Have you ever wondered how much some of your old possessions could be worth?

The chance to find out will be on offer at a special event taking place in Peterborough next month.

A 'Flog It' style valuation day is being held at Peterborough town hall on Sunday 18 March from 10am until 4pm.

Ron Bateman and associates of Batemans auctioneers of Stamford will be on hand to value items for £1 each. Guests can bring a maximum of three items to be valued.

Ron and his team will advise on the value of each item and if it is sellable, you can offer it for sale at his sales room in Stamford at a later date.

Councillor John Fox, the Mayor of Peterborough, said: "This promises to be a really enjoyable event, so if you have any old antiques or items and have wondered what they could be worth, now's your chance to find out. The event is also for a really good cause and I'm looking forward to seeing as many people there as possible."

Ron Bateman said: "I am constantly surprised how often people turn up at valuation events with items that they thought were old junk, but actually turn out to be worth something. And even if your items aren't valuable, we should be able to tell you about their history."

Admission is free and all monies made from valuations at the event will be donated to the Mayor of Peterborough’s charity fund. The Mayor's charities for 2017/18 are: Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust, Peterborough Sea Cadets and Shopmobility.
