A SERIES of charity events raised over £700 from people donating unwanted items.

Between June and October, the Bishop’s Waltham Town Team ran five monthly themed stalls.

These allowed people to bring unwanted items to donate and other people to take items that they were able to re-purpose.

All items were free, but there were collection boxes for Rowans and Revitalize on the stall table and which collected £734.82 over the course of the scheme.

The Bishop’s Waltham Town Team were pleased with the response to the newly launched scheme.

It received many favourable comments from people who came along.

They were able to pass on residual stock at the end of the events to charities for wider dispersals.

The Bishop’s Waltham Town Team are very grateful to Hampshire County Council for a grant from their Waste Prevention Community Scheme and to Solent Design for their financial support.
