A former Bourne Academy pupil is thought to be the youngest person ever to gain an auctioning qualification.
Kirsty Young, 17, from Beech Avenue, Bourne, is only in her second year working part-time as an auction apprentice at her father’s company Golding Young and Mawer.
Walking in her father, managin director Colin Young’s footsteps, Kisty has successfully passed the NAVA Technical Award in Chattels Auctioneering.
Kirsty said: “I decided to start studying toward this qualification once I finished my GCSEs and decided to follow my father into the business. Growing up I have been intrigued by the weird and wonderful objects he has sold.”
