This Suffolk constabulary policeman's helmet is Lot No 35.
One of the Bargain Hunt contestant items up for sale is this 86 year old bottle of single malt Glenury royal!

One of the great things about the sale is that profits and proceeds in the form of commission and lotting fees will be donated to Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice which is the is the only specialist palliative care inpatient unit in Peterborough.
Joely Garner, Community Fundraising Manager at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, said: “A heartfelt thank you to everyone at Finbarrs Auctioneers for supporting Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.
“The funds raised will help us continue to be there when it matters for local families needing our expert palliative care and bereavement support.
“Our hospice is facing a funding gap of £1.6 million this financial year due to the cancellation of our fundraising events, no clear indication of how long it will take our charity shops to return to normal trading levels, and the additional cost of purchasing PPE for our doctors and nurses.
“We are really grateful for your kind support, which will help us to be there for people in the local community at the most difficult time of their lives.”
Members of the public will be allowed into the sale which starts at 11am but should be aware, that only 30 spaces are available and therefore booked is required should you wish to attend; there is also outdoor space if this is preferred.
Of course, if you have missed out on your chance to attend, or simply can’t make it in person but would love to get in on the action; you can as always register to bid LIVE from the comfort of your home here!
