BARGAIN hunters from Helensburgh and beyond made the most of the rare September sunshine and flocked to the Hermitage Academy PTA’s latest indoor car boot sale at the school on Saturday.

Amongst the 45 stall-holders keen to attract support, as well as the attention of eager shoppers, were members of the Police Scotland Youth Volunteers group in Helensburgh, face painting, a petition seeking support for the community buyout of Red Cross hall, and students Amber Harvey and Rosie Sumsion (who was whipping up a tasty bacon butty or three) raising funds for their Bookcase Zambia trip next year.

Marie Harvey, the chairperson of the school’s PTA, told the Advertiser: “More than £400 was raised from stall sales, of which every penny and pound is reinvested into the school clubs and extra curricular activities.

“The car boot sale is just one of the many PTA events run throughout the year. The next event is the epic Christmas Craft Fair on Saturday, November 23 at Hermitage Academy.

“With only 92 days to Christmas, make this your first destination for that certain gift for someone special!”
