AUCTIONEER Christina Trevanion is set to lend her skills to a charity car boot sale for a riding centre designed to help disabled people.

The star of a number of BBC antiques shows is based in Whitchurch with her business partner Aaron Dean, with the pair lending their expertise to a number of valuation events across Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales.

Christina will be hosting at a valuations tent to continue to raise more money for the new Cavalier Centre Riding for the Disabled in Much Wenlock, which was opened by Princess Anne last week, at a fundraising event on Sunday May 12, at the Isle Estate, just outside Shrewsbury.

She admits she was delighted to be asked to take part.

“Country house car boot sales are such a great place to come and have a rummage,” she said.

“I can’t wait to see what is on offer at The Isle on May 12.

“Why not take the opportunity to come along, bring with you something that you think may have a value and I’d love to have a look at it for you, you can either bring the item itself or photographs.

“It promises to be a very exciting day, raising money for a fantastic cause and who knows, we may even discover a lost masterpiece!”

n The riding centre is to help disabled people all over Shropshire and the Country House car boot starts at 9am and finishes at 3pm.
