Clear out for Christ­mas and boost the hos­pice

Join in fundrais­ing car boot sale at Ex­cel­sior Sta­dium

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Ju­dith Ton­ner

Here’s your chance to grab a bar­gain, have a pre- Christ­mas clearout and sup­port St An­drew’s Hos­pice – by join­ing in with the first big event of the Ad­ver­tiser Read­ers’ Room ap­peal for St An­drew’s Hos­pice.

A fundrais­ing car boot sale will take place at Ex­cel­sior Sta­dium on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 3, with all pitch fees go­ing to­wards our cam­paign to help kit out a new room at the re­fur­bished hos­pice.

Now we are ask­ing read­ers to set out their stalls at the event to help raise funds for the much- loved lo­cal char­ity.

The car boot sale is be­ing hosted by Ex­cel­sior Sta­dium Ltd – who kicked off our hos­pice cam­paign with its first do­na­tion of £5000 – and is also be­ing backed by Air­drie Sup­port­ers’ Trust.

Sta­dium boss Scott Hether­ing­ton joined hos­pice cap­i­tal ap­peal fundraiser Grace Pea­cock to launch the event and en­cour­age read­ers to make a date in their di­aries.

He said: “We’re de­lighted to be able to help the Ad­ver­tiser’s Read­ers’ Room ap­peal for St An­drew’s Hos­pice.

“The Ex­cel­sior used to host very pop­u­lar car boot sales; so we’d like as many peo­ple to come along as pos­si­ble on De­cem­ber 3 to make this one another suc­cess.”

Ad­ver­tiser ed­i­tor Gra­ham Miller added: “This is an ideal op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to have a clearout be­fore Christ­mas, while showing sup­port for the hos­pice – and if it proves suc­cess­ful, we’ll be look­ing to hold another in Jan­uary.”

The car boot sale at Air­drie’s sta­dium will be­gin at 9am for sell­ers to pitch, and will be open to cus­tomers from 10am to 1pm; the East Stand will also be open for in­door sell­ing.

Costs to par­tic­i­pate are £10 per car and £15 for craft-type stalls, with sell­ers re­tain­ing all pro­ceeds from their own stalls. Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able to buy on the day.

Any­one in­ter­ested in a pitch or stall at the fundraiser is asked to email gra­ham. miller@ trin­i­tymir­ror. com as soon as pos­si­ble.

If suc­cess­ful, we’ll be look­ing to hold another car boot in Jan­uary . .
