Organisers of this year’s Save the Children Nearly New Sale held at Hugh Ripley Hall in Ripon anticipate the total sum raised by the event will be around £9,000.

The total amount is uncertain because some donated items have yet to be auctioned.

Publicity officer Jill Warwick said: “We are very grateful to everyone who donated goods for the sale and all who came to support us and buy. We recognise many friends from previous years who come to support us.”

Organisers also want to trace their 12ftx3ft banner which went missing from the B6265/A61 roundabout.
