A north-east charity is hoping to help fund its lifeline mental health support by inspiring people to take up a new hobby.
Smile Scotland has prepared around 400 lots to go under the hammer at its premises in Oyne at the start of next month.
A mix of DIY tools, gardening equipment and a prized three-wheeled Reliant Robin have all been selected for sale.
Founded in 2014, the charity helps people with mental health difficulties, disabilities or criminal records get back into work or further education and training.
The auction was initially scheduled for December 28, but was put on hold when new Covid measures came into force on Boxing Day.
Founder and trustee Clive Hampshire said: “We’ve had this sitting and ready to go, and now this will be the first income the auction house has been able to take in for five months.
“Even though we’ve been unable to open the business, we’ve still been working in the background with our mental health clients.
