A Whitby school is hoping to raise bootfuls of cash for St Catherine’s Hospice.

Next Sunday ( 22 May) Caedmon School’s year nine prom committee is holding a car boot and table top sale between 9am and 2pm at the school in aid of St Catherine’s Hospice.

The car boot will be held in the school’s back car park and parents, teachers and members of the public are invited to come along and sell their wares.

The cost is £5 per car with all proceeds going to the hospice.

And in the main school hall, there will be a table top sale which will cost £5 per trader.

Already taking part are Avon and The Pampered Kitchen and there will also be book stalls, jewellery stalls, cakes and buns provided by the Let’s Get Cooking group.

Whitby’s Army Cadets will also be present, Beacon Farm will be selling ice cream and there will also be a fund-raising raffle and various games.

Joining them on the day will be Carolyn Jackson, who heads the fund-raising team at St Catherine’s Hospice and she will set out a stall with information about the charity and will be available for questions.

And if all that isn’t enough people can get their cars cleaned and polished by a willing group of students with all money raised going to the hospice too.

Teacher Carol Richardson said: “The committee has this year chosen to send all the money they raise from this event to St Catherine’s Hospice as they thought it was an important charity and like the fact they are also helping a local charity that helps local people.”

For more information or to set up a stall in advance in the school hall contact Carol Richardson on (01947) 602570.

Anyone wanting to donate a raffle prize is asked to bring it in to the school’s reception.
