Great weather brings out bargain hunters

A car boot sale raised £2,700 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution

A car boot sale raised £2,700 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

The annual sale, which is organised by the Henley branch of the charity, took place at Henley Rugby Club in Marlow Road on Sunday and had more than 200 sellers.

Branch chairman Norman Daniells said: "It all ran very smoothly with no problems and the weather was good. There was a good crowd and all the sellers seemed happy.

"I want to say thanks to our stalwart band of volunteers who all came along to help. Without them we couldn't hold the event."

The branch has held the sale every August for the last 37 years. Last year's event had to be rescheduled after heavy rain meant less than 20 people turned up.

Mr Daniells said: "Last year was a disaster so anything we did this year was bound to be better and this certainly was."
