Estate agents Herbert R Thomas have helped raise £18,500 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution in tandem with Ruth Jones at a charity event at The Royal Pavilion in Porthcawl on November 18.

Ruth had the support of friends and Gavin and Stacey co-star, Rob ‘Uncle Bryn’ Brydon, as well as singer Bonnie Tyler and Only Men Aloud.

An auction was held, which included a wide variety of items, conducted by Andrew Thomas, senior director of Herbert R Thomas, when the total raised on the evening was £18,500.

Ruth said: “Andrew ‘Gavel’ Thomas. What a class act! His highly impressive auctioneering skills took the whole evening into another league, and it was his panache and persuasion that made the bids go higher and higher, raising a fabulous amount for the charity. Thanks, Andrew. You totally rock!”

Andrew said: “Herbert R Thomas was incredibly proud to be part of a superb and worthy evening. I’m very pleased that we were able to raise such a large amount for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. I would also like to thank our host for the evening, Ruth Jones, who made the night memorable for all.”
