Grab a bargain for the Scouts

PUBLISHED: 15:24 04 November 2011

Fill a bin bag of clothes for just £2 to help raise money for the 1st Whimple Scouts roof appeal.

The 1st Whimple Scouts reached their £12,000 target to repair the roof of their hut, but more money still needs to be raised - to pay for the additional costs.

The Scouts need to collect a further £2,000 and will be holding a mammoth jumble sale and auction on November 19 at their Whimple headquarters.

A novel feature of the event could help you fill your wardrobe with secondhand clothes for just a few pounds. Just bring along a bin bag to put your new purchases in.

Whimple Church donated £1,000 to help cover some of the costs, which totalled £15,300.

The jumble sale starts from 2pm - don’t forget to bring your own bin liners to fill with clothes for only £2.
