Donations have flooded in for a fund-raising jumble sale taking place at Flegg High School in Martham on Saturday.

Although the damage was covered by insurance there is still a funding gap to bridge because of the excess and school events co-ordinator Diane Spooner said they had been inundated with goods to sell.

The school was targeted over the Christmas holidays.

The jumble sale on Saturday runs from 11am to 2pm

Items for sale include clothes, shoes, jewellery, bags, bric-a-brac, furniture, fitness equipment, bedding, curtains, toys, kitchenware and much more.

The event team run by Mrs Spooner is made up of volunteer staff and students.

There will also be a cake sale, stalls, refreshments, a tombola, and places to sit and chat. Entry 20p.
