Having sold many items for the charity over the years we did not hesitate in offering our services free of charge for such a wonderful cause. Following the Elmer’s Big Parade around the city where the sculptures, each featuring a unique design by a talented artist, delighted tens of thousands; it was now down to the final part of the journey, the main event. Plymouth Auction Rooms were involved in the cataloguing, logistics and marketing of the Elmer Sculptures and in with St. Lukes Hospice, we were delighted it all came together on the evening on 9th October where auctioneer Paul Keen took to the rostrum to greet a packed out Toys ‘R Us.
