A jumble sale in St Albans is raising money for animal charities.

St Albans Animal Rights (STAR) is hosting the event to top up other fundraising activities - they recently collected more than £400 at St Albans Market and more than £300 outside Sainsbury’s.

The group was started by a group of friends about 25 years ago, and since then they have staged demonstrations, gone to protests, and even had a float at the St Albans Carnival.

At one point there were around 30 active members of the group.

Treasurer and founding member, Siobhan Barrett, encouraged everyone to visit the sale: “People come from a very long distance, we have people coming from North London and all over the place.”

The jumble sale will be on May 20, at 11am. Entry is 40p in Sandridge Village hall.
