A handmade dolls house will be auctioned by a Bury fund-raiser who has passed more than £17,000 on to charity in the past four years.

The carefully constructed four-storey dolls house has been beautifully finished by its creator.

Despite thieves removing its built in bathroom while it sat on view at Bryan Garnham’s house in Great Barton it remains a unique and beautiful item.

The dolls house was donated to Mr Garnham to support his fund-raising efforts.

He said he was ‘gob-smacked’ when he first saw the four foot high toy.

Over the past four years Mr Garnham has sold toys, bikes, electrical items and kindling from his house.

All money raised is donated to Guide Dogs, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice and St Nicholas Hospice Care.

He said: “I have a good life and now I get to pay it back.

“I say If you cannot do a good deed do not do a bad thing.”

Mr Garnham will auction off the dolls house and is inviting people to come and view it before submitting a bid to purchase.

It will be sold unfurnished for its new owner to make their own.

Bryan said that several parties had already expressed an interest.

Bidding will conclude at the end of April. Contact Mr Garnham on 01284 787390.
