Antiques dealer Andrew Lamberty buys a range of fascinating objects and donates all the profits to a food bank in Fareham and a disabled support group in Aberdeen.
In these tough economic times, donations to charities are down by record amounts and it's Britain's smaller charities that are suffering the most. Antiques dealer Andrew Lamberty uses his expertise to buy and sell a range of fascinating objects and donates all the profits to these small struggling charities.
Andrew travels to opposite ends of the country to meet two struggling charities. In Fareham, he meets the volunteers behind a food bank. With increased demand, they need money to move to bigger premises or face closure. Andrew then travels to Aberdeen to meet a disabled support group. As the only social contact for many isolated people, the charity needs urgent funds to keep their ageing minibus on the road.
To raise the money these charities, Andrew travels to the world's biggest flea market, le Marche aux Puces in Paris, where he buys a military globe used in the Cold War and some French antique mirrors. Andrew bids at auction in Monte Carlo for a vintage bracelet and buys a Picasso plate. With three months to make the money, will Andrew deliver in time?
