HIGH lamb prices are nothing unusual for buyers and vendors at the Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre.
However, on Thursday the enthusiastic bidding on some lines of charity lambs was heartening to say the least.
Lambs, being offered to support the Mansell family made $350 with buyers keen to show plenty of generosity.
H Francis and Co organised the auction and company principal, Tim Francis said it was great to see people aiding in what is a good cause.
Jayden Mansell was injured in a farming accident in April and his mum Karen works for H Francis and Co.
Mrs Mansell is a regular face at the Wagga Livestock Marketing Centre for both the sheep and cattle sales.
"(The auction) was unreal ... we had around 30 lambs and a few hoggets donated," Mr Francis said.
"(Mansells) are a well-known family and it is good to see people supporting this," he said.
Mr Francis said further charity auctions would continue and a go fund me page had been established as well.
He encouraged people to visit the H Francis and Co Facebook page to find further details.
