Bedale car boot sale

Sunday, May 24th 2009

Bedale car boot sale didn't know what hit it this morning when the Foxglove stall arrived. The contents of the van were arranged on 6 tables and spread out on the floor too. Thankfully the rain held off although there were a few odd spots at times. Our stall proved to be a huge success though and the van was almost empty on the way back. Richard (pictured here) was a real star and announced our 'closing down sale' towards the end!

There are so many people to thank today. Firstly all our Friends and volunteers who donated goods to sell. Secondly, Pat and Sandie who did a sterling job sorting out all of the bric-a-brac last week. Thanks also to everyone who helped with loading and unloading the van, selling (Sylvia, Jean, John, Ray, Beryl and Emma excelled!) and clearing away. Finally, we must thank Elizabeth for covering today and Jack and Jill for filling all of the bird feeders. We are extremely grateful. Same time next week?

The money raised has still not been counted but is likely to be in the region of £500 which is absolutely fantastic and £200 more than was raised last time!!
