Jumble Sale pt 2

Our preparations paid off and we had a great time at the Cranbrook Jumble Sale last Saturday. Seven of our girls gave up their lie-in and braved the rain to help set-up and run our stall. In fact we had so many willing helpers that we were able to lend them to help out other stall holders which the girls did with just as much energy and enthusiasm as if it had been their own stall. I was so impressed by their attitudes.

They threw themselves in to chatting to customers, discussing items and negotiating prices, so much so that one of them has decided she wants to be a salesperson in the future! I think we were all pleasantly surprised to find we’d made £50 at the end of the day which was a great reward for their hard work. The girls are still keen to give half to Cancer Research and are looking forward to deciding how they want to spend the rest. We’ll keep you posted!
