Wonderful Amy Moth Auction!

12 October 2017

News, Our Community

Williamsons Solicitors have been proud sponsors of the Sailors Childrens Society Sportsman’s Lunch for many years. The event has raised a considerable amount of funds for the disadvantaged children of seafarers that the Society helps, providing basic assistance such as school uniforms when a family are hit by a life changing event.  This year, in the City of Culture, Williamsons have very kindly donated the Amy Johnson Moth for auction at the lunch which follows the local Hull theme.  The Society is currently appealing for donations of other local prizes to auction at the lunch which has historically raised up to £30,000 on the day. Although the lunch is again completely sold out, early bids and telephone bids will be accepted and interested parties are therefore asked to call Wendy Fish at the Sailors Childrens Society on 01482 342331 or email Moth Auction

If you want to see the moth in it curret location then you can visit the Williamsons office in Hull on Lowgate where it is still bust attracting tourist photos on a regular basis.

Williamsons Moth AuctionAbout the Design:
The Wonderful Amy is inspired by 1930s design and Amy’s love for both flying and fashion. Her plane is flying towards a stained glass sun leaving behind it a trail of fabric and flags, representing the countries she flew to. The logos of the Gipsy Moth, the ATA and Hull’s coat of arms can also be seen in the design. The artist has also featured a fish pattern originally seen in fabric, reminiscent of the 1930s to represent the oceans and the fish merchant business run by Amy’s family.

Mr Todd a

Williamsons through Richard Bancroft and his team gave me a very professional conveyancing package which was stress free at a very competitive price. I would recommend to anyone purchasing or selling a house to use Williamsons.

Mr and Mrs Stewart

They were faultless. Determined.well worth the money. I am recomending the to the two residents who are selling appartments in my block.


On contacting you to make an appointment, the receptionist was very helpful. On arrival for our appointment again reception was very friendly. On meeting Gordon, he quickly understood our case and we realised that we were being advised by an expert in the field of defamation. His letter to Pinkney Grunwells Solicitors, Bridlington, put an immediate stop to the harassment that the Bridlington U3A committee had received from their client over the previous six months. Many thanks.

Roger W

My case was handled in a very professional and courteous manner throughout and proceeded exactly as I was told it would from the very first meeting. All contact I had with you either by telephone, email or in person completely put me at ease and therefore I felt comfortable asking any questions I had about my case to which I always received full and informative answers. I was kept fully up to date at all times with the progress of the case and as to what to expect next. I have been particularly impressed with the kind and compassionate treatment of my case from all of the staff at Williamsons particularly Nick Gray who throughout was professional and understanding during this difficult time. Finally I would like to pass on my thanks to all involved with the success of my case and would not hesitate to recommend Williamsons to anyone else unfortunate enough to be in a similar position.
