Bargains piling up for Pohlen sale
The huge Pohlen Garage Sale is on this Saturday, November 2.
The garage sale has snowballed as many people have donated good quality items including indoor/outdoor furniture, household and kitchen items, linen, computers, aluminium joinery, electrical appliances, a kit set garden shed, designer clothes and books.
Pohlen Foundation Trust secretary Judith Challis said they were delighted with this response.
‘‘We’re pretty sure you will agree it’s a treasure trove of goodies to browse through,’’ she said.
‘‘We’re also running a car boot sale for those who want to sell their own gear.
‘‘We ask that you pay $10 on the way in and arrive by 7.30am to park your car and set up. Use the Weka St entrance to Pohlen.’’
There will also be cakes and goodies galore – Matamata’s best baking, so stock up for the week or pop some in the freezer for Christmas.
‘‘We appreciate the Dalton’s Dais- ies for Pohlen helping us department,’’ Judith said.
New World has donated the groceries required for the sausage sizzle, complete with cook, so grab a sausage while treasure hunting.
The Espresso to Go coffee cart will be on site, as will the candy floss lady.
‘‘The money we raise will help us to install new 32 inch flat screen televisions throughout the wards,’’ she said.
‘‘ The digital changeover is looming and our old ones are really just too old. You just can’t be in hospital without a telly.’’
More helpers are required for a couple of hours that morning so please let Judith know on 881
