I just wanted to contact you and your team directly to sincerely thank you and your colleagues for all the work that went into placing the property into the auction on Tuesday 26 July, all the marketing involved and the invaluable advice we received on the numerous offers received before the auction. I hear the auctioneer worked extremely hard during the auction to finally reach this extraordinary price, please pass our thanks on for this, we really are most grateful.
The extra funds this sale has generated will go a very long way in our daily work improving the lives of our service personnel who have received life altering injuries while selflessly serving their Country so we can’t thank you and your team enough. Very best wishes

Our very successful July Property Auction saw the sale of a delightful bungalow with stunning coastal views near Worlebury. Donated to charity by the previous owners, the proceeds from the sale went to Help for Heroes. A charity dedicated to providing direct, practical support for British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty. David Plaister Ltd recently received this wonderful email from the charity following the auction.
Giant Glass Red Poppy Auctioned to Commemorate Armistice Day
The popular Puxton Park tourist attraction commissioned Bristol Blue Glass in Bath Road, to create a free blown glass poppy earlier this year to commemorate Armistice Day. A silent auction was held to raise funds for The Royal British Legion and the poppy was sold for an undisclosed sum to David Plaister Limited.
Poppies became synonymous with the great loss of life in war after flowering in the war-torn battlefields of Europe at the end of the hostilities in the spring of 1915 and this wonderful commemorative poppy will now be a lasting reminder of those who fought and died during the conflict and will be displayed in the David Plaister Ltd Office, 12 South Parade, Weston super Mare.
