Successful Nearly New Sale
The Centre @ Halton continued its successful events programme with a Children’s Nearly New Sale focussing on children’s clothes, nursery equipment, toys and other items on Saturday June 15th. The 22 tables sold out very quickly, and there was even a waiting list.
There was a very good turn-out of local families to buy the many goods on sale. They also appreciated the new arrangements in the hall to sell home-made cakes, drinks and other refreshments.
Overall the event, together with the raffle and cake donations, raised £387 which was around £50 more than last year. This is a welcome addition to the fund being built up to finance a range of upgrades to The Centre to continue to keep up its high standards.
It was interesting to hear from those who attended that the Halton Prattle, posters around the village and in Lancaster, signs at the roundabout and near Denny Beck as well as websites like Babymaze and a new facebook Nearly New Sales page were the main places they obtained information about the event.
Thanks and congratulations to organiser Maureen Richardson and her team of volunteer helpers.
