Hamilton Bland, our Senior Auctioneer, was BBC Television’s Chief Swimming Commentator for over 23 years. He has been auctioneering at charity fundraising auctions for over 16 years. Hamilton has a speedy, humorous style and gets through the lots very quickly much to the relief of the guests! However, he certainly knows how to extract the very last penny out of the room in the process. Hamilton is extremely skilled at selling more than one of the same type of item, at conducting ‘Stand Up sit Downs’ and most importantly at presenting the pledge sector of the evening’s fundraising activities.
