People are being urged to hunt through their attics for hidden antiques to take part in the first of a monthly series of charity valuation days at the Bridge Hotel in Thrapston.

Towcester-based auctioneers J P Humbert are hosting the event on Wednesday, November 5, between 5pm and 8pm, and subsequent valuations will be held on the first Wednesday of the month.

Auctioneer John Humbert said: “We offer the chance to have items professionally appraised just like the Antiques Roadshow. If they want to take the item home then fine - all we ask is a contribution to the charity box. If they wish to consign into our auction, we will be pleased to book the item into our next sale.”

Money raised is being donated to the Hannah Payne Riding School for the Disabled. Visit or call 01327 359595 for more information.
