Trail of jumble sales take over Hackney this weekend

There will be over 60 jumble sales in open spaces, secret gardens, community halls and schools around Hackney this Saturday to raise money for charity.
Hackney Quest, The Crib, SickleBility, Cordwainers Garden, Wayside Community Association, Linden Children’s Centre, Sebright Children’s Centre, Amity Project and The Old Fire Station Community Centre are amongst the organizations which have signed up for the Garage Sale Trail.
Hackney Giving will have a stall in Dalston Square, while vintage clothes and makers and creators will be sold on the Dalston Roof Park in Ashwin Street and film paraphernalia will be on sale at the Rio Cinema in Kingsland High Street.
The one-day re-use community Garage Sale Trail event is billed as a sustainable and fun way to declutter and meet neighbours while raising money for charity. The initiative started in Australia to combat illegal dumping and instead raise funds for community projects.
Money raised benefits Hackney Giving, which supports the borough’s smaller charities to work at a grassroots level with residents and communities.
