FIRST CAR BOOT SALE

In January we attended our first Rotary CAR BOOT fundraiser event.  We appealed for donations and organised Shelter clients to helps sort and price.  We had so much stuff, including beautiful children’s clothes and toys. The crowd on the day was small both from the stand holders as well as attendance by the public point of view, but we believe everyone made money and expressed an interest for this to be ongoing. We are excited about the opportunity this brings to our shelter with regards to a constant monthly income stream.  Many charities use selling second hand goods as an income, so competition is tough, we have found that variety and price is the big thing.  In the past we hosted a monthly JUMBLE SALE at the shelter and made this available to locals living near the shelter.  We will look to do this again.  Please contact Paddy Judd on 083 701 6504 if you have any desirable items to donate.
