Signed Torvill and Dean memorabilia up for auction by Notts charity

NOTTINGHAM based charity Radford Care Group has announced that it will be auctioning items signed by skating legends Torvill and Dean to raise valuable funds for the charity’s £1.3 million development.

The ice skating duo agreed to become patrons of the care group in 2017 and, on a trip to the charity’s care centre last month, signed several items from the charity’s fundraising initiative ‘Buy a Brick in a Tick’.

The soft lookalike bricks signed by Torvill and Dean will be going onto a live eBay auction for fans to bid on. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the charity’s new development.

CEO of Radford Care Group, Jill Davies said:

“It was brilliant for our patrons Torvill and Dean to visit us and it was such an exciting day for everyone involved with the charity. You could really see our attendees faces light up when they walked into the room. We are incredibly grateful to them to take the time to visit us and hear about the exciting developments we have going on at the charity, especially the construction of our new care centre.”

The development is due to start in July 2018 with the demolition of the existing care centre on Prospect Street and new, larger premises constructed on the site. The project is supported by a number of Nottingham-based businesses, including Gleeds and CPMG.

Jill added:

“We are hoping that we raise a good amount of money for the signed bricks. We are really trying to have a big push in order to raise the funds needed. People have been very generous in previous fundraising events we have done so we look forward to seeing the same again this time round.”
