Jum­ble pro­vides a grand boost for Chil­dren’s So­ci­ety

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

SHOP­PERS raised about £1,100 for the Chil­dren’s So­ci­ety in a jum­ble sale on Satur­day.

The char­ity held the sale at Chal­font St Peter Church Hall and also re­ceived ‘house col­lec­tion boxes’, which fam­i­lies keep at their homes and drop change into.

The boxes raised about £1,300 and more are be­ing sent to the com­mit­tee.

The sale’s or­gan­iser Iso­bel Sil­man said: “The com­mit­tee would like to say a very big thank you to all those who gen­er­ously do­nated so many items for the sale and also those who at­tended as buy­ers or helpers.

“De­spite the rain, many came along and had great fun rum­mag­ing through the vast ar­ray of items on of­fer.”

The so­ci­ety helps run­away chil­dren and left­over items from the sale have been dis­trib­uted to the char­ity’s shops, as well as other char­i­ties in the area.
