The week-long sales generally pull in £3,000 or so, all of which goes to help the charity in its efforts around the world. Shott said that only around one in every hundred donated cameras is in good enough conditions to sell, "practically all my free time is spent cleaning, checking and repairing, and I enjoy it. I like fiddling with mechanical things and I also find it's slowing down my arthritis. It's good for everybody. People get decent well-checked cameras and I have fun."
