Remember, remember the 5th of November - it was our autumn Jumble Sale! Throughout the week preceeding the Jumble Sale we had been collecting Jumble from local houses and gradually the hut filled with mountains of Jumble. We had excellent publiciy for the event including a colour photo on the front of the local Review and by noon on the 5th a queue of eager shoppers had started forming outside the hut. Inside we finished sorting and laying out the Jumble ready for the 1pm opening.
For two hours streams of people came to the hut eager to find a bargain or two. Cars left Heathervale ladden with beds, desks and other larger pieces of furniture.
By the end of the afternoon it was time to count pile of cash that had been collected. A massive £800 pounds had been raised - a record breaking sum. Many thanks to Andy who organised the sale and to the many other people who helped collect, sort and sell our way to funding our roof repairs.
