Adam Partridge is one of the UK’s best-known auctioneers and valuers of Antiques and Fine Art. For many years he has appeared as an antiques expert and auctioneer on numerous antiques television programmes including Flog It!, Bargain Hunt, Dickinson’s Real Deal and Cash In the Attic.
In 2008, he opened Adam Partridge Auctioneers & Valuers in Macclesfield, Cheshire, which has rapidly become the leading independent auction house in the North West, now operating from large purpose designed premises at Withyfold Drive, Macclesfield.
Adam Partridge has an emotional connection with Dominica, visiting the Island often two to three times a year. Following Hurricane Maria, Adam was kind enough to open his home in Dominica to international aid workers.
Earlier this year a fundraising event for Dominica hosted by Adam Partridge raised just over £10,000 which Adam will be visiting Dominica end of July/August to ascertain how best the funds should be utilised.
PROFESSOR DAME ELIZABETH ANIONWU
Professor Dame Elizabeth Nneka Anionwu DBE CBE FRCN FQNI PhD has published her memoirs Mixed Blessings from a Cambridge Union – “Do get hold of this and read it. This is the sort of book that changes who you are. It’s an astonishing story, beautifully told with sensitivity, humour and pace.
Not only is it a revealing social history of British attitudes to the perceived stigmas of race and illegitimacy; it’s an intensely personal account of a remarkable woman’s realisation of the world around her and her determination to make it a better place. Elizabeth Anionwu is an alchemist, turning shame and prejudice into strength and service. Utterly inspiring.” Review on Amazon by Jane Robinson, author & social historian – 20th December 2017.
Dame Elizabeth has supported DASSSA over the past couple of years by attending our events where abstracts of her books were read, donated financially and have drawn awareness and raised the profile of DASSSA on social media.
