Successful Children’s 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 March 1st. 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 with 200 adults coming along. They also appreciated the bacon butties, hamburgers, drinks and other refreshments.
Overall the event, together with the raffle, raised £372 which was 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 standard.
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 the 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.
The Centre’s next events will be the Bon Giovi Tribute Show on Saturday March 29th and the Rasa Theatre production of “State of Verbal Undress” on Saturday May 10th. There will also be another Children’s Nearly New Sale on October 18th. Enquiries about all these events can be made to The Centre on tel: 01524 811316.
