Get­ting best value while rais­ing cash

Halifax Courier - - Calderdale Flood: Your Fundraising Efforts - By Maariyah Is­mail

Fundrais­ers for busi­nesses and house­hold­ers who were af­fected by the Box­ing Day flood­ings con­tin­ued with two big events last week­end. A gi­ant three day jum­ble sale be­gan at Tod­mor­den Town Hall, while three top TV an­tiques ex­perts ran a val­u­a­tion day at the newly re-opened Heb­den Bridge An­tiques Cen­tre.

The jum­ble sale opened its doors a day af­ter the Mayor and Con­sort of Tod­mor­den, Coun Steph Booth and Tony Booth, wel­comed many who had helped their fel­low towns­peo­ple out in the Box­ing Day floods to a “thank you” tea party in the Mayor’s Par­lour at the Town Hall.

From the first day on Sun­day, the jum­ble sale looked on course to raise thou­sands of ued peo­ple’s heir­looms, fam­ily trea­sures or cu­riosi­ties.

The trio wanted to help re­in­force the mes­sage that “the Calder Val­ley is open for busi­ness.” Tr­ish Ban­yard of Heb­den Bridge An­tiques Cen­tre, whose new home is at Val­ley Road, who wel­comed vis­i­tors, said she was very pleased with how the event went.

“It was bril­liant - peo­ple came from far and wide. Eric, Paul and Tom worked re­ally hard all day. Peo­ple brought along some great things in­clud­ing Ge­or­gian sil­ver and a set of paint­ings worth thou­sands of pounds. It was great to see how busy it was - it was like old times.”
