Antiques under TV expert scrutiny at charity event in Uckfield
4:20pm Tuesday 13th August 2013 in News
Valuable heirlooms were brought down from the attic to be evaluated at a charity event attended by an Antiques Road Show expert.
TV personality James Braxton was guest of honour at the event which was organised jointly by the Rotary Club and Inner Wheel Club of Uckfield.
More than 50 people attended the event last Thursday at the Belmont Centre in Uckfield.
The day raised £560 which was divided between two charities, the Children’s Respite Trust Club and Sussex Air Ambulance.
The most valuable item evaluated on the day was an album brought in by Merrill Plowman which had been passed down the family from her great aunt who was born in 1880.
The album contained autographs from her great aunt’s 16th birthday, as well as sketches drawn during the First World War when she served in the Queen Alexandra’s Nursing Corps and First World War medals.
Mr Braxton valued the album between £1,000 and £1,500.
