A CHARITY is organizing a table-top sales event to raise “must-have” funds and free up space.
The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT), which is based near Lymm, appealed for donations of pre-loved items and received a great response during the lockdown.
While people were stuck at home, they turned their attention to DIY projects and cleaning their homes, but since the charity shops were closed, they had nowhere to put their clothes.
The charity’s appeal was great news for many as they were able to recycle their unwanted items, helping them to free up space and donate to a good cause.
It also meant that CAFT could use its empty gym which it has not been able to use since the start of the pandemic.
A team of volunteers led by Association Ambassador Carol Robinson have worked hard to organize the donations and now have a huge supply of “quality” clothing available.
Although their Knutsford charity shop was open, they couldn’t make their way through the clothes.
The association hopes that as restrictions ease, it can soon reopen its gym to visiting children. So she decided that a table sale would free up space and also raise vital funds.
In order to protect visitors, the number of bargain hunters will be limited and they therefore ask people to book when they visit.
Their ticket gives them an empty bag that they can fill with clothes the same day.
There will also be an option to purchase additional bags on the same day so that they can “get even more bargains”.
Tickets will cost £ 10 and the event will take place on June 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The CAFT is intended for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children in the north-west.
