The latest Inishowen Methodist Churches’ community hall rebuilding fundraiser will be held in Carndonagh Mart.

The event, an antiques evaluation and auction, will take place on Saturday, April 28.

Reverend Alison Gallagher, Methodist Minister for Inishowen hoped the antiques evaluation and auction would be a “fun day” for everyone.

She added: “Who knows, maybe there’s a Van Gogh in a Glengad attic.

“Saturday will begin with an “Antiques Roadshow, from 12noon to 2pm. Three experts from Belfast will appraise any items that the public wish to bring along.

“Richard Bell specialises in furniture, clocks and porcelain; Jim Mullan is a renowned expert in Irish and European art; and Lawrence Johnson specialises in silver, jewellery, coins, stoneware and glass. This is a great opportunity to have fun and discover whether those treasures are really valuable.

“The Auction starts at 2.00pm, with Lots available for viewing from 12noon. A wide variety of contemporary and antique items will be available to bid on, something to suit every pocket and every taste,” said Reverend Gallagher.

Reverend Gallagher added: ‘Our previous major fundraising event was the Christmas Tree festival when the response from the community was fantastic. We really hope we can count on the community for their continued support.

“This the latest fundraising event as the church looks to rebuild their Community hall in Moville.

“We have raised approximately €190,000 to date, but we are still a way off the target of €350,000. Our vision is to rebuild the community hall in Moville that has served the whole community as well as local churches for almost 100 years. Situated in the centre of Moville, the hall is central to the town’s heartbeat and ideally placed to contribute to an inclusive community,” said Alison.

Refreshments will be available throughout the event and there is on-site parking.
