A CHARITY is holding a tabletop sale event to raise ‘much needed’ 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.

As people were stuck at home, they turned their attention to DIY projects and clearing out their homes but as charity shops were closed, they had nowhere to pass their clothes to.

The charity’s appeal was great news for a lot of people as they were able to recycle their unwanted items, helping them to clear space and donate to a good cause.

It also meant that CAFT could make use of their empty sports hall which they have not been able to use since the pandemic started.

A team of volunteers led by the charity’s ambassador, Carol Robinson, have worked hard to organise the donations and now have a huge amount of ‘quality’ clothing .

Despite their Knutsford charity shop being open, they could not work their way through the clothes.

The charity are hoping as restrictions ease they will soon be able to reopen their sports hall to children visiting, so they decided a tabletop sale would free up the space and also raise vital funds.

In order to safeguard visitors, the number of bargain hunters will be limited so they are asking people to book in their visit.

Their ticket gives them an empty bag which they can fill up with clothes on the day.

There will also be an option to purchase extra bags on the day so they can ‘snap up even more bargains.’

Tickets will be £10 and the event will take place 26 June, 10am-3pm.

CAFT is for terminally ill, disabled and disadvantaged children in the north west.
