Students at a Norfolk high school are hosting a jumble sale to help raise money for school “extras” and provide bargains for canny shoppers.

The events team at Flegg High in Martham are busy collecting second hand items to sell cheaply on May 20, 11-2pm.

Diane Spooner, who leads the team, said the idea had come from one of the students who enjoyed rummaging for a bargain and thought it would be a good way of fundraising for the school.

Admission has been set at 20p, which according to Mrs Spooner’s research is the going rate. She said it was the first time the school had staged a table top sale and that donations could be dropped off at reception.

As someone who gave tours to prospective and new students and their parents she said the topic of a ‘swift shop’ often came up with other schools outside the area apparently holding regular rummage sales.
