Lynda Knofflock arranges curios and collectibles ahead of an auction to benefit Hospice Wanganui on May 21. There are more than 450 lots in the auction - from furniture to jewellery, china and books. The items have all been set aside from donations to the city's hospice shops over the last six months. They include china dolls, cheese dishes and royal memorabilia. The auction takes place in a former Farmers building, accessed from St Hill St. Viewing is on May 20 from 3-6pm and again on May 21, from 9am until 9.45. The auction begins at 10am. People can register and place absentee bids on either day. It's the second time collectibles have been auctioned for Hospice Wanganui, and Ms Knofflock said it could become a regular event.
