TV legend Michael Aspel to star at Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers’ charity golf day in Saffron Walden

TELEVISION veteran Michael Aspel and Antiques Roadshow star John Foster will be putting their hosting skills to good use and raising money for hospice services in North Essex.

Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers, based in Stansted Mountfitchet, is hosting a charity golf day at Saffron Walden Golf Club on Thursday July 7 to raise funds for EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) and Isabel Hospice (caring for patients and families in east Hertfordshire).

Sworders, who are great supporters of the hospice movement, are hosting the charity day, set in the picturesque parkland course which is deceptively challenging.

Mr Aspel will be prize giving whilst the charity auction, which has some stunning prizes, will be conducted by Guy Schooling of Sworders.

EACH north Essex partnerships manager Jo Colbert said: “We’re delighted that Sworders are hosting the charity golf day which will benefit EACH.

“We rely upon voluntary donations to deliver the majority of our care and support to life-threatened children in the region - which is why events such as this are so important to us.

“It is a guaranteed great day out, with top-quality golf, refreshments, company and auction prizes plus the opportunity to meet Michael Aspel and John Foster.
