Old Buckenham has a rumble in the jumble

Heaps of bargains
There hasn't been a real jumble sale in Old Buckenham for ages. But, despite the snow showers outside, plenty of people came along to the Church Rooms today to search through the heaps of clothing piled up on the tables. They may have been looking for themselves, their children or grandchildren but they seemed to be finding lots of potential bargains. And with virtually everything priced at just 20p an item there were certainly bargains to be found.
The jumble sale had been organised as a fundraiser by the Buckenham Pre-school Group. As well as the clothing there was bric-a-brac, toys, books, CDs, homemade cakes, drinks and a tombola to persuade the visitors to part with a little more money.
First indications are that the Pre-school funds will benefit to the tune of around £280.
One further benefit of the event was that all the clothing that was left over was going to the charity UK2Rom [] and would soon be on its way to one of the poorest parts of Romania to be given to people in great need of such 'luxuries'.
