All Aboard! auction raises thousands for the museum
29 November 2016
Tiverton Museum hosted a really exciting auction evening on Friday 18th November. Twenty of the All Aboard sculptures of the Tivvy Bumper steam engine that were around the town over the summer, were auctioned by Brian Goodison-Blanks of Bearnes, Hampton and Littlewood.
All 20 of the sculptures found new homes. £4940 was raised for the museum, and £500 for Tiverton's Market Drop In Centre. The remaining sculpture was the prize in a raffle which raised a further £1000 for the museum.
