See how much each Lincoln Knight sold for at record charity auction

This story is over

A staggering £180,000 was raised for charity at the Lincoln Knights Auction this weekend.

Final sales ranged from £2,200 to a whopping £15,000. The knights selling for the highest amounts were:

  • Knight of the Skies – £15,000
  • Lincoln Green – £9,200
  • Knight in the Forest – £9,000

The total was an exciting increase on the £167,000 raised at the auction of the Lincoln barons two years previous – when the bomber baron was the star of the show raising £11,000.

Two thirds of the money raised will go to the Nomad Trust, part of Lincolnshire YMCA, towards a new day facility and new direct emergency accommodation for the homeless.

Rachael Baxter, from The Nomad Trust said: “The Lincoln Knights’ Trail has been absolutely fantastic.

“We are honoured to be the nominated charity for the event and we want to say a huge thank you to the organisers, artists and sponsors who have made this event, and the whole Trail, so successful.”

The Nomad Trust will put the funds towards its £1.2 million Capital Appeal project.
