A bargain childrens clothes sale raised a massive £10,700 in less than three hours.
The ever-popular Oxfam Children’s Wear sale will help families abroad, including those struggling in war torn Syria.
Organiser of the event, held on Friday, at Berkhamsted’s Civic Centre, Nicky Evans said: “This wonderful result will help families across the globe. We are so grateful to all our supporters.”
The sale is held twice a year and is a chance for local families to pick up second hand good quality children’s clothes, toys and games at knocked down prices.
Oxfam’s trading director Andrew Horton said: “This amazing success comes at a crucial time for us as we are in urgent need of funds for our work among refugees in Syria. Our grateful thanks to all concerned.”
The charity has been providing refugees with warm blankets, mattresses, heating oils and stoves, as well as money for rent for families unable to support themselves.
For those that missed the sale, there is still ample stock at the charity’s High Street shop.
