Last year’s sale raised over £10,000 by Royal appointment. The charity’s president – the Princess Royal, Princess Anne – visited volunteers before the grand opening, her first visit to the popular sale in 24 years.
Her Royal Highness spent around an hour meeting the various volunteer stallholders selling everything from books to clothes and bric-a-brac
A letter was later sent by Princess Anne’s Lady-in-Waiting to thank everyone involved for making the event one of the charity’s most popular events in the North of England.
