THE Rotary Club of Spalding raised £1,050 for Help for Heroes in two hours on Saturday morning at an auction at The Vista.

Club president and former auctioneer Alan Porter shared gavel duties with fellow retired auctioneer John Allen to dispatch a room full of assorted lots, including tools, bric-a-brac, furniture, collectables and pictures.

A presentation clock achieved the top price, £85.

Mr Porter said: “The local population has been very generous. We had quite a few nice lots given to us.”

He said the charity was delighted with the proceeds.
