Auctioneer and television personality Thomas Plant will be appearing at a charity event in aid of the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service.

Thomas, who has appeared as an expert on shows such as Bargain Hunt, the Antiques Road Trip and Flog It, is hosting an auction at the charity's Heaven Sent Ball at the Clarion Collection Harte and Garter Hotel in Windsor on Saturday, May 10.

Antiques expert Thomas, 39, said: "I'm hoping people are expecting to dig deep into their pockets and not be afraid to bid strongly with their hard-earned money for a well-deserved cause.

"They will be entertained by myself and my colleague Neil Shuttleworth and there are going to be lots which money can't buy so there will be lots up for grabs."

The charity was started by Fiona and John Devine, from Dedworth, who lost their son Alexander at the age of eight to a rare brain tumour.

Special Auction Services co-director Thomas has been involved with the cause for eight years after hosting a charity auction at one of its first charity events.

Since then he has held valuation days, charity auctions at Special Auction Services with donated items, and he will be holding a premier auction in December.

Thomas said: "I was moved by Fiona and John's story and humbled by what they were trying to do.

"It's shocking the royal county of Berkshire doesn't have a children's hospice. We want to see it succeed and help other families with children with life limiting illnesses. It's your greatest fear as a parent and to have a support network there for you is not of any consolation but it must help."

Tickets for the Heaven Sent Ball are on sale at £70 per person.
