NEWS: The BLUE Auction – Bonhams

Some of you may already be aware that Bremont applied, a number of weeks ago, to help make ventilators for the National Health Service (NHS). They also launched a Food4Heroes bracelet, with the proceeds going to a charity founded by a friend of Giles English that provides 20,000 meals per week to NHS workers.

Now, they are part of a Bonhams online auction called ‘The BLUE Auction in aid of NHS Charities Covid-19 URGENT APPEAL’, contributing what may have been, until now, a ‘money can’t buy’ experience – a tour of Bremont HQ and a flight for four with Nick English. It is Lot 46, which is described as follows :

“Lot 46
