TV star and antiques expert Caroline Hawley is to be speaker and guest of honour at a summer luncheon in Helmsley, in aid of St Leonard’s Hospice.

The event, on Friday, July 12, from noon, will be held at the Feversham Arms and include a two-course lunch, followed by a talk from Caroline, who will also be doing valuations.

She said: “It’s going to be a fabulous event at The Feversham Arms in Helmsley.

“I’m going to give a talk on the antique market today – what’s in, what’s out, what’s hot and what’s not.

“Dig deep, bring anything along and I’ll be more than happy to give an absolutely free valuation. You might be surprised. All proceeds go to St Leonard’s Hospice, the most fabulous charity covering most of Ryedale.”

Tickets are £40. The event is limited to 50 places, so to book your place at the hospice website or directly from The Feversham Arms.

All proceeds go to St Leonard’s Hospice in York.
