A yard sales day offered a bargain and raised nearly £1,000 for two charities in memory of a popular and community spirited villager.

About 88 households set up shop in the eighth annual event in Feltwell in aid of The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and The Children’s Heart Foundation.

It was the latest event this year organised by the Feltwell Fundraisers to bring in money for the two charities, which were chosen by the family of Trish Brown.

Mrs Brown, who was a lunch time supervisor at Edmund de Moundeford Primary School, in Feltwell, died late last year from lung cancer.

Vanessa Cock, chairman of Feltwell Fundraisers, said: “She was a very good supporter of our events and activities - she always came along to help and was willing to get involved. She knew virtually everybody and people have really got behind us to help boost the funds.

“The village was really busy and it brought the bargain hunters out. There was a really nice atmosphere, we’re really pleased with how it went and we will hopefully do it again next year.”

They hope to raise about £3,500 from activities throughout the year to be split between the two charities and are organising a craft fair at Porter’s Barn, in Feltwell, on October 2.
