Banchory Scouts held a very successful jumble sale recently raising nearly £11,000 for good causes.

The enormous sum of £10,910 was raised from eagle-eyed shoppers on hunt for a bargain at the scout hut sale.

Amongst the usual clothes, bric-a-brac, toys and furniture, the sale also attracted buyers for a piano and three large trampolines!

People all over the ‘shire and indeed Aberdeen, came to the Jumble sale and the queue started at 8.30 despite doors not opening until 10am.

Vannessa Holmes, Scout GEC secretary, said: “A jumble sale on this scale does not just happen, so we have quite a few people to thank for their time and effort in making this come together. Local businesses include Deeside Construction Ltd, Bruce McCombie Builders, McIntosh Plant Hire, Pinehill Joinery and Enermech Ltd - they all provide their vans and/or staff to collect jumble and to deliver items sold on the day.

“We would like to thank all those who generously donated some great items for this year’s Scout Jumble Sale.

Raising the sum of £10,910, will benefit some charities and also allow the Scouts to continue in what they are doing. We feel that Banchory and its surrounding areas benefit from this Jumble Sale, and we hope that it continues.”
