A DIAMOND ring and a watch went under the hammer during a charity auction.

The Riverside Antiques Centre, in Wharf Road, Stamford, raised money for Anna’s Hope with an auction at the weekend.

Anna’s Hope was set up by Rob and Carole Hughes, of Pilsgate, in memory of their daughter Anna.

Four new collectors for the charity, Hannah Forrest, Chloe Powell, Holly Archer and Kate Clement sold ice-creams and greeted visitors to Saturday’s viewing.

Staff at the auction centre donated a diamond ring and a watch, which raised £340.

The centre also offered a mirror as a first prize for a raffle.

A total of £255 was raised through ice-cream sales and the raffle.

A total of 270 items went under the hammer on Sunday at the centre, where a piano bar and restaurant will also open in the future.

Manager Nick Bettles was pleased with the event.

Mrs Hughes thanked the centre and its customers for their generosity
