Auction will raise funds for typhoon victims

A ‘bring and buy’ charity auction is being thrown in Marlborough on Friday to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in The Philippines.

The event is the brainchild of Gary Wilkinson, owner of the Marlborough Parade Antique Centre, who was moved to act after a recent storm caused a hole in the roof of his business premises.

“Shortly after that, the typhoon hit The Philippines,” said Gary. “I thought, if a hole in my roof is causing me this much hassle, how would I feel if I had lost everything?”

Gary will be conducting the charity auction at the Green Dragon public house in Marlborough High Street from 6pm on Friday, November 22, with some lots donated by his own business..

Wielding the gavel will be David Harrison of the Jubilee Auction Rooms in Pewsey.

Individuals or businesses who would like to donate an auction lot – antique or modern – should contact Gary on 07860 808061.

All proceeds will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Philippines Typhoon Appeal.
