James Lewis Picks the Winner

The winning ticket in the Pollyanna Pickering Foundation 2015 Winter Prize draw has been drawn by celebrity TV auctioneer James Lewis. The lucky winner, Sue Allen of Stafford has won a painting of a penguin.

James is without doubt one of the most recognised faces in the international antiques world. He is a regular on international television shows throughout Europe, the Americas and Africa. He is regularly seen as an expert on BBC shows The Antiques Road Trip, Bargain Hunt, Cash In The Attic, Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is and is heard on numerous BBC radio shows. However James is also a great animal lover – who originally considered training to be a vet! Along with Pollyanna he acts as a patron of the Born Free Foundation.

Pollyanna was delighted that James was willing to spare time from his very busy schedule to help her select the winners in the prize draw organised by her charitable foundation.

Between the sales of prize draw tickets, donations and a percentage of sales from Pollyanna’s Summer exhibition the Foundation has raised £4000.00 which will be used to complete our pledge to raise £8000.00 to fund the retraining of Chinese workers from bear bile farms to become certified animal carers in a new sanctuary for animals which have been rescued from this cruel trade.
