Oak Trees Jumble Sale is a huge success

Following months of preparation, hard work and dedication from staff and supporters of Oak Trees, £1,108.14 was raised at the Oak Trees Jumble Sale, which took place in Attleborough on Saturday 22 April.

The jumble sale, which was the brainchild of Community Support Worker, Marie Marsh, was one of the projects currently being worked on to raise money for a much needed, second-hand people-carrier so that adults with a learning difficulty using the Oak Trees Respite and Supported Living Services can enjoy trips out.

Marie worked tirelessly in the lead-up to the event to ensure it was well publicised and that stalls were fully stocked. Lots of staff and families of service users contributed clothing, bric-a-brac and soft furnishings to ensure the sale was a success.

Final preparations and setting up started early on Saturday morning, and it was a pleasure to see guests and tenants working alongside staff, parents and family members on the various stalls.

A huge thank you goes to Marie for organising the event so well, and to everyone who played a part in making the day such a success, from those who donated and bought goods, to the cake-bakers, refreshment providers and stallholders, as well as the organisations and individuals who gave financial donations. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Our minds are now focussed on the Oak Trees disco, which is being held at the Attleborough Town Hall on 13 May. If you’d like to support us by donating a raffle prize, or would like to purchase tickets for the event, please give us a call on 01953 457360. We would love to hear from you.

The amount raised at the Jumble Sale brings our fundraising total so far, to £4,796.66, taking us a few steps closer to buying a vehicle for those using our learning difficulty services to enjoy – brilliant!
