Clothes sale at Dunmow’s late night shopping event raises �500 for local charities

THE old district council offices opened its doors on Friday night to offer chilled late night shoppers a warming cup of mulled wine and a mince pie.

A room full of designer clothes and Christmas gift ideas provided an additional attraction with many people grabbing themselves a new outfit at a bargain price.

The evening was hosted by the team at Mullucks Wells and was the latest in a series of events being held to raise money for the three local charities that they are supporting this year. Dunmow-based charities West Essex Mind and ResCu Maypole House are the beneficiaries together with the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity.

Around �500 was raised on the night which takes the total raised so far to over �40,000.

Chairman of Mullucks Wells, Tim Trembath, said: “I was delighted to see so many people coming through the door.

“It was an enjoyable event and to raise nearly �500 in one evening was a great achievement. What we didn’t sell we are donating to Helen Rollason Cancer Charity to sell in their local charity shops.”
