Jumble bonanza to raise cash for scouts
2:00pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
THE 1st Colwall Scout Group has started collecting items for its annual jumble sale to be held next Saturday, September 21, from 2pm to 4pm.
Last year they raised more than £4,000 from people’s unwanted goods, and it all goes to pay for equipment and maintain the facilities used by this very active pack.
The event runs from 2pm to 4pm, but keen salegoers make sure they get to Colwall Village Hall early to rifle through the extraordinary range of items that are donated.
Everything from clothes, furniture and home wares to garden equipment fill the hall, the neighbouring scout hut and the surrounding outside area.
Delicious home-made refreshments will also be available.
Organiser Julie Tristram said: “Our annual jumble sale has become a wellknown local tradition, it takes many people to make the sale run smoothly but it’s always great fun for everyone, whether they are helping or buying.”
