MORE than 2000 lots will be up for grabs at the upcoming annual Rotary auction, with the auction yard brimming with plenty of handy items.
The auction will be held at the auction compound at 16 Littlefield St on Saturday, May 26.
Auction committee head John Engwicht said this year's event would be bigger than ever, and would follow tradition in providing an outlet for the community to have a marketplace.
"We've taken on Blackwater Construction's auction, and we're going to be auctioning off everything in their yard... There's going to be close to 1500 and 2000 lots." Mr Engwicht said.
"That's a big ask for one day's auction.
"It is going to be big... everything from $2 to $100,000."
Mr Engwicht said the auction always had a strong crowd in attendance.
He said this year the auction would feature all of Blackwater Construction's trading stock, with vehicles, pallets of floor tiles, toilet bowls, hand basins, timber and paint.
"It's a reno's delight," he said with a laugh.
"(There is) also a stack of old mine vehicles... 30-odd."
Mr Engwicht said because the lot was so large this year, they would kick-start the bidding earlier than usual.
"Because of the size of the job, we're starting at 9am," he said.
All the proceeds from the day will go back into community projects as well as international causes.
"We're looking at getting a safe water supply in Nauru (small island in the Pacific). Their hospital has been plagued with infection problems from water," he said.
"It came to our notice, and we are trying to assist."
