It is sale time again for a team of mums in Auchenblae. Led by Gillian Milne and Isabelle Riddoch the group are about to embark on their 12th Nearly New Sale on Saturday in Auchenblae Village Hall 9-11 am. Over the last eleven sales, they have raised over £11,000 for local good causes including the village Playgroup/nursery/school and charities including the Archie Foundation, Barnardos Scotland, Motor Neurone, Brian Injury Rehabilitation Unit and Multiple Sclerosis.
On this occasion the main beneficiary will be Friends of Carronhill, who are fund raising for a new mini bus. It is hoped that the sale will attract the phenomenal support it has done since it was first established. This sale takes on a slightly different format, the main difference being there will be no sale of nursery equipment or childrens clothing. The focus is on all toys, books, games, DVDs, CDs, sports equipment, “ride-ons” and musical instruments for children of all ages. It is an excellent opportunity in this day and age to re-use and recycle such equipment. All of the items for sale are in first class condition and are often barely used.
In addition, the local Playgroup will be supplying refreshments and home baking, so why not pop along for a browse then enjoy a nice cuppa and a cake!
The organisers would appeal to all sellers and/or buyers who attend the sale to park considerately in the area to avoid jeopardising the ongoing success of the event. For information please contact Gillian on 01561 320685 or Isabelle on 01561 320759,
