AUCTIONEER Richard Winterton has handed over a £1,000 cheque to the We Love Lichfield fund.
The money has come from the family firm auctioning off items donated to charity by customers.
Mr Winterton invited We Love Lichfield patron Simon Price to his salerooms at the Lichfield Auction House, Fradley Park, in April to make the presentation.
The Bargain Hunt regular said he was delighted to have had We Love Lichfield as one of the auction house’s chosen charities for the past year.
“It’s a real privilege to be able to present £1,000 to such an important fund which helps so many small local clubs and projects,” said Mr Winterton.
“The work Simon does with his colleagues is outstanding and we all wish it continued success.”
We Love Lichfield is a local fund providing small grants to a wide range of projects across Lichfield district.
All donations are invested through a permanent endowment fund by registered charity The Community Foundation For Staffordshire.
We Love Lichfield considers all applications from local groups and makes presentations to the organisations chosen twice a year.
