Their charity work has always been important to them as a firm and includes charity auctions, talks, valuation days and supporting a charity each year through catalogue sales and donations. We are delighted to nominate Kidney Wales as our nominated charity for 2021. It is a charity close to our west Wales auctioneer, Charles Hampshire’s heart.
“Sadly my father suffered kidney failure and passed away when I was fourteen. The kidney dialysis treatment he received no doubt extended his life by a couple of years which were extremely important years for my brother and I. We have always been extremely grateful for this and it is for these reasons I have selected Kidney Wales as our chosen chariot ty this year. I would like to thank the Rogers Jones partners for the opportunity to select a charity this year.”
