A car boot sale at a Fenland shopping centre raised more than £360 for Wisbech Lions Club.

The charity has also been boosted by the Horsefair Shopping Centre’s textile recycling bank, which opened last July.

Shoppers have dropped off unwanted clothing items, with a percentage of the proceeds donated to the Lions - so far almost £100 has been raised this way.

Horsefair manager Kevin Smith said: “The textile bank is a brilliant way of raising money from things that might usually be thrown away.

“I’m so pleased that we’ve been able to donate so much money to the Wisbech Lions Club recently; they do so much to help out in the local community so it’s great to be able to support them.”

Wisbech Lions vice president Ray Hill said: “All of the funds raised go towards local deserving causes and community projects. Thanks to the team at the Horsefair for the ongoing help.”

The Horsefair textile recycling bank is located next to Superdrug and shoppers can drop off their items at any time of day.
