Charity Auction of MG Goodies

A range of new MG branded items is being auctioned by 1020 over the coming weeks with all proceeds going into the club’s charity fund for 2021.

Towards the end of last year the club was contacted by Michael Jones, who lives near Shaftesbury, offering a selection of MG parts and accessories which he was clearing out of his garage. A multiple MG owner in the past, these ranged from parts for pre-war and post-war MGs through to accessories for MGFs and Mike generously offered them for free.

A number of the items have already been sold and have raised £90. The remainder (mainly the parts suitable for older models) have been taken on by Mike Rolls in exchange for a collection of new MG branded goodies (with a total retail value of £192) and it is these that will now be auctioned.

The individual items are illustrated and listed below. Each item comes with a short description and the normal retail value plus the current top bid – there will be a reserve price on each item.

We are now looking for club members to bid on the individual items with a closing date of Friday 12 March after which the successful bidders will be informed and arrangements made to deliver the items.
