Hopes high for jumbo response at sales

An Arbroath woman has organised a series of monthly ‘Jumbo Jumble Sales’ this Autumn and Winter to raise funds for charity.

Angela Faye Tribble hit upon the idea of taking the town’s regular carboot sales indoors to the Arbroath Community Centre when the season ends and has so far had an encouraging response after floating the idea on the Arbroath Online Facebook page.

Angela said: “Just in a few hours, we have received enough interest from people to confirm that it is safe to plan a monthly table top sale at the Community Centre during the cold winter months.

“The hall costs £100 to rent, but more people renting it brings the cost down. Initially it was £10 per person, but it’s been brought down to £5 and if we keep the £10 fee we can donate the proceeds to charity.”

It has been suggested that a straw poll on the day will decide which charity benefits from each Jumbo Jumble. In addition proceeds from the refreshments stall will also be donated to charity.

Jumbo Jumbles will run 10am-2pm on the following Sundays: November 20, January 22, February 19, March 19.
