The tally is already nearing £600 and the Great Grooms owners, staff and dealers are confident that they will hit their initial target of £2000.

Certainly the video has attracted a great deal of attention in the very short time it has been available. It has featured in all the local newspapers and magazines and also in the antiques trade press.

The Mary Hare School is an amazing place. It is the only one of its kind in the UK for deaf children and depends on your donations for its new developments and the maintenance of its existing facilities. Please make your own happy donation at https://www.justgiving.com/James-Podger1/ or by text to 70070 with a message: GGAC99 followed by the £ sign and the amount of your donation.
