Charity day for Harrogate auctioneer

A HARROGATE auctioneer will be hosting a charity event at Brize Norton this weekend.

Nidel Smith, an associate director at Tennants Auctioneers, is sponsoring the charity auction to raise money for the Royal Air Force Association and British Limbless Ex-Servicemen’s Association.

Among the lots is a limited edition print of a painting by Harrogate artist Chris Fox, featuring the C17 which is based at Brize Norton and used to bring soldiers’ bodies back to the UK. Bidders will also be competing for an F1 driving suit worn by Mika Hakkinen at the auction, which takes place tomorrow.
