HUNGERFORD ARCADE AND SAVE THE CHILDREN

CHARITY AUCTION FOR 
SAVE THE CHILDREN

Many of you will know Stewart Hofgartner from the television programme, Dickinson's Real Deal and indeed, his shop Below Stairs of Hungerford Antiques.  Well, branch members of the charity, Save The Children, Julia Radbourne and Pat Furber, organised an auction that was held at the Herongate Leisure Centre in Charnham Park Hungerford. The manager of the leisure centre, Richard Curtis kindly provided the supper. The auctioneers were Stewart Hofgartner and Chris Boreham who gave their time and expertise free of charge.  The auction was a great success and raised a record amount of money for the Hungerford branch of Save the Children.  This was an auction of promises two of which were a ride to church for a bride and a week's worth of shopping for an elderly person. The atmosphere during the auction was fantastic!  The auction raised £3,000 for Save The Children. Brilliant!!!

  1. Hi Stewart. I have just seen your wonderful shop on Salvage Hunters and you have a sign (I hope) for Green Shield stamps on the door. My late father used to be a sales agent for them and the sign brought back so many memories for us all. Is it still for sale?? I would love love to have it for our family and to remember my dad. I could buy it or trade some great Irish beer or direction signs that i have collected among others! With very kind regards. Jonathan. Donegal Town. Ireland.
