Yesterday’s Open day and Jumble Sale was truly a resounding success!
Early birds arrived at 9 a.m to finish setting up, quickly followed by punters eager to get their hands on some bargains. Soon the hall was full and a buzzy, busy, warm and welcoming atmosphere, much commented on by visitors, set the scene for the arrival of Deputy Mayor of Derby, Frank Hammond and his chauffeur Mick.
The Deputy Mayor chatted to volunteers, had a go at several of the games and posed for many selfies! He said if he won the “Lucky Bucket” he would donate his winnings to DRS. Believe it or not, he did win!! So thanks you for the generous donation Mr Deputy Mayor!
The cake stall was a highlight and Prue Leith would have been speechless at the sight of Gareth’s “Citrus Sponge”. Thanks to fantastic planning by Diana and Claire, every stall did well, so much so that the final total for the day was over £700!!
But best of all was the feeling of community, positivity and love. If you haven’t been before, please come and experience this for yourself!
