Sell your clutter
I Would like to encourage readers to clear out of their clutter, get rid of all of those items they no longer need and host a good neighbours yard sale (sponsored by Coldharbour) to raise vital funds for older people’s charity Royal Voluntary Service (formerly WRVS) before the end of the month.
Research by the charity reveals that clutter fills a room or more in one-in-fivehomes in Britain. Even though 36 per cent say they always try to keep unused or unwanted items to a minimum, 92 per cent confess to having clutter with a third admitting they have a lot of items they no longer want or need.
Items donated by famous names such as Kimberley Walsh, Cliff Richard, Florence Welch and Emelie Sandé will be auctioned on eBay from October 28 until November 9, so dig deep and help Royal Voluntary Service raise as much money as possible to help older people stay independent.
Holding your own sale couldn’t be easier. For a fundraising pack with advice and tips on how to make your sale a success, visit royalvoluntaryservice.org.uk/yardsale or phone 0845 600 5885.
Carol Nevison, Head of Operations for the North, Royal Voluntary Service.
