Bumper day for sale

On Saturday, Isabelle Riddoch, Gillian Milne and a group of friends ran the latest of their Nearly New Sales at Auchenblae Village Hall.

As always, there was a fantastic turnout of buyers on the day. As a result, the sale made an incredible £1,500, by selling almost £5,000 worth of goods in two hours! On this occasion, the charities which will benefit are, the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation (Scotland) and the National Autistic Society (Scotland). These charities were chosen after Isabelle and Gillian were approached by two local parents whose children suffer from these conditions. Small contributions will also be made to the local school and playgroup.

Teas, coffees, homebakes and delicious bacon rolls were also provided on the day at the hall by the playgroup to bolster their funds.

Gillian and Isabelle would like to thank all buyers and sellers for their continued support of this event. The next sale will be held in March 2013.
