More than £400 was raised for a good cause at an annual Antiques Roadshow-style event.

The Rutland Roadshow was held at Rutland Sailing Club in aid of Rutland Sailability, a charity that looks to provide sailing opportunities for people of all ages and all disabilities.

Visitors paid £5 for experts from Tennants, in Oakham, to value their their items, as well as passing on advice on antiques, with proceeds going towards the charity.

The event was officially opened by the High Sheriff of Rutland Bart Hellyer, who thanked all members of Rutland Sailability who helped out on the day.
