Mareno gas burner range ovens are part of the equipment the liquidated Burrswood centre is auctioning off.

The Dorothy Kerin Trust, which was trading as The Burrswood Health and Wellbeing Centre near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, is auctioning off assets including catering equipment.

The Christian centre used to offer a range of therapies, spiritual healing retreats and 12 beds for rehabilitation and respite care, but closed its doors in June after going into administration.

On the instructions of joint administrators Mark Newman and Vincent Green of Crowe UK, the former 40-bed medical hospital has been forced to sell its appliances.

Winning bidders are required to collect the equipment between Monday 9 and Friday 13 December from 10am-4pm.
