Auctioneers launch charity partnership

Gloucestershire fine art auctioneers and valuers, Chorley's, have teamed up with local medical charity, Cobalt, to support them throughout 2019.

The charity was invited to visit the auction house to learn more about the business as well as get a sneak preview of the forthcoming sale of items from significant country estates.

Catrin Hampton, director, Chorley's said: "We are looking forward to supporting Cobalt this year and there will be an opportunity to find out more about the charity at our March auction. We are also very excited to announce that 15% of the proceeds of sales at the Fosseway Artists 100th Exhibition, hosted by Chorley's from 21st to 23rd June, will be donated to Cobalt. The team are looking forward to supporting Cobalt's work this year."

Emma Mortiboy, fundraising for Cobalt, said: "It was fantastic to visit the saleroom, meet the team and view all of the wonderful antiques and art at the auction house. We are very much looking forward to working in partnership and to all of the events and activities the team have planned."

Formerly part of Bruton Knowles art and antiques division, Chorley's boasts two salerooms and offices in the grounds of Prinknash Abbey, Gloucestershire. They hold six auctions throughout the year and money raised this year by their fundraising events will go towards Cobalt's work in the fields of dementia and cancer.
