Brinsley Car Boot Sale

Members from the Broxtowe Group held a car boot sale in Brinsley this weekend to raise funds for the Group. (Pictured above, Nina Brown the Broxtowe Organiser and Kim Page the Broxtowe Fundraiser).

It had been intended for the sale to go ahead several weeks ago, but the good old British weather had prevented this. On Saturday morning the sun was shining which gave us no excuses, our garages and car boots just had to be emptied. As we arrived at 7.15am on the picturesque and rural site there were already around 50 stall already set up and trading. The car boot really is growing bigger each year and is a successful local event held on Saturday and Wednesday mornings.

Several items had been donated to the Group from local supporters and members, from clothes, shoes, IT equipment, fishing items, bicycles, scooters, pictures and a few items of furniture. Thanks to everyone concerned.

We left just before lunchtime with around £140 raised for the Group.

Well done to all involved.
