Fraserburgh Kids Sale helps raise cash for charity

Fraserburgh Kids Sale is a fundraising event which is encouraging people to register to sell their goods while raising money for charity.

The event will take place at St Andrews Hall on Saturday, September 24, from 10am to 4pm.

If you have lots of children’s clothes, toys, equipment or maternity items you no longer need but don’t want the hassle of trying to sell at car boots or newspaper ads, you can register for the Fraserburgh Kids Sale and have it sold for you.

Event organiser Jaclyn Muirhead told the Herald: “We have thought about doing this for a long time before putting plans into place at the beginning of the year.

“The idea came from our time living abroad. A similar sale takes place twice a year in Spring and autumn and generates a lot of interest and is very successful.

“It has taken me six months from thinking about it to actually getting it off the ground and we plan to do another sale in Spring 2012. We have had a lot of positive comments and enquiries about what we are doing.

“The idea behind this is for people to drop off their tagged items the night before the sale and Fraserburgh Kids Sale will sell the items for them.

“They do not have to be present to take part.

“So if you have children’s items that you would like to sell and make some money then see the website for more information. www.fraserburghkidssale.co.uk”

There will also be tea, coffee and homebakes for sale at the event with all proceeds going to Rebecca’s Rainbow Hearts Ebstein’s Anomaly Trust.

Jaclyn continued: “This is a Scottish-based charity which helps children from the North East of Scotland who have a condition called Ebstein’s Anomaly.

“It is a very rare congenital heart defect and there is currently not a lot of experience of it in the UK.

“When someone has a child who is diagnosed with Ebstein’s Anomaly it can be a very frightening and lonely time.

“The charity aims to help support and fund children to receive treatment for this condition.

“It also campaigns for better specialist support services for all children who suffer from congenital heart conditions who live in the North east of Scotland.

Children grow very quickly and it is Jaclyn’s idea that it would be good to get everything under one roof to sell and wants to see everyone at the St Andrews hall on September 24.
