A SCOUT group is planning to host the ‘largest jumble sale in London’ in the run up to its centenary celebrations.
The 1st Northwood Scouts will hold the event at their base, in Northwood Way, at 2pm on Saturday, May 18, and are now calling on people to dig out their unwanted goods to sell.
Proceeds from the annual sale are the group’s main source of income and have in previous years paid for a new mini bus, camping equipment and essential maintenance to the hut.
But this year’s profits will go towards a very special 100th birthday trip to Kandersteg International Scout Centre, in Switzerland.
Committee member Ruth Stapleton said: “We are a charity and rely on donations to make these sort of trips possible.
“The scout group gives opportunities for youngsters to make new friends, get involved with fun activities and engage in social activities, gaining skills and confidence to last their whole lives.”
The scout hut is open between 6.30-8pm Monday-Friday and 1.30-6pm on Saturdays for people to make donations.
All clothes, shoes, crockery, books, toys and electric goods will gratefully be accepted but they cannot accept white goods, analogue TVs or beds.
