On Saturday 24th May, while the garden open day was in full swing, our very own Paul Henderson took part in the ITV show ‘Dickenson’s Real Deal’!
Paul, our HopeWorks Supervisor, took a donated replica of a ship’s wheel to present to the dealer. After a brief haggle, he accepted the offer of £70. The dealer, David Ford, then told Paul he could keep both the money and the ship’s wheel as a donation to New Hope!
All of us at New Hope would like to say a big thank you to David Ford and the producers of ‘Dickenson’s Real Deal’ for their generosity.
If you’re interested in buying the wheel (featured in the image above) please call HopeWorks to find out more on 01923 800 028. We’d love it if you could match – or even beat – the dealer’s offer of £70!
According to Paul (who’s been on the show a few times and is therefore something of an expert!) we can expect to see the programme in six to nine months. He will be told nearer the time so watch this space for an update on when the episode will air!
*UPDATE - sadly we ended up on the cutting room floor and didn't quite make the show!
