Share portfolio, car and painting among most valuable charity shop donations

Oxfam has won the Association for Charity Shops' prize for the most valuable item donated to charity for the second year running, after its Lincoln branch received a share portfolio worth £22,635.

"This is a first, we think,” said Lekha Klouda, director of the Association. “It's marvellous that charity shops are now able to make good use of a much wider range of donations – some of which would have been impossible only a few years ago".

Other contenders for the prize included Save the Children, which received an Audi TT later sold at auction for £12,500, and St David’s Foundation, which was given a painting by Julian Trevelyan, which was auctioned for £8,000.

The prize will be awarded this week at the Association’s annual conference in Keele, Staffordshire.
