Once again, the Eastington Yard Trail, organised by Luke Honeychurch (and family!), was a huge success with many residents opening up their front gardens or driveways to exchange unwanted goodies for cash – and equally, with many residents wandering around and grabbing themselves some great bargains.
Lizzie Mills and her family and friends at Cress Green used the occasion to support two charities,. She writes:-
“We’d like to say thank-you to everyone who came and bought goods from our yard sale in Cress Green. Also huge thanks to friends and family who donated so many items for us to sell, and to Luke Nicholas Honeychurch for organising the event.
We raised a staggering £414.00 for our Charities from the sale, of which we gave £214 to Clic Sargent and £200 to the Helen & Douglas Hospice .
All unsold items were donated to H&D Charity shop in Cirencester, or to Break Charity shop in Stonehouse. We have since learned that the H&D charity shop have so far raised a further £413.73 from the donated left overs. What was even more amazing was the fact that just a few weeks later we held a coffee morning for ‘Stand up to Cancer’, and raised another staggering £653.20 for it.
Thank you so much to all who bought items or donated money.”
