The Horsham Fashion Police, sponsored by Gingermint, are holding a Rumble Jumble at Millais School in support of local Horsham charities – and we need you to come along, bring clothes of your own, and support the good causes.
The Rumble Jumble is being organised by Hazel Haylock, with the assistance of ten Millais pupils.
Naomi Ncube (14) said: “It feels good to get involved, as well as help charities in such a positive and enjoyable way.”
Erica Mapait (15) added: “I think helping charities is something that young people should be encouraged to do.”
The event is on Saturday, February 23, from noon to 5pm. Entrance is free, and all the Horsham Fashion Police ask is that residents in the Horsham district contribute one or two bags of jumble themselves, as well as bringing their own bags to carry home any treasures they find themselves at the event.
Musical entertainment will also be at Millais, with Ryan’s Disco providing entertainment and well-known face of Radio 1 and ex-Millais pupil Gemma Cairney getting involved too, helping to pioneer the event. In addition to featuring on the Radio 1 Breakfast show, Gemma does a lot of charity work, including work in Ethiopia, and organises Rumble Jumble events in London, with celebrities involved.
However, the Horsham Fashion Police wanted to do an event that was away from London, and help support the two Horsham charities, Sands and Age UK- both at local level.
Hazel Haylock, organiser of the event, said: “Jumble can include anything from clothes, shoes and accessories, to home ware; anything you no longer like or want that other people may treasure.”
There will be opportunities to buy your own treasures at the event; fashion, accessories and home ware for sale, as well as cake stalls, candy buffet, fruit cocktails and an opportunity to win great prizes in the tombola and raffle.
Hazel added: “The Horsham Fashion Police were born out of a burning desire to do something positive for our local community and the choice of charities was a simple one.
“Sands is a charity dedicated to counsel and support mothers and families who have suffered a tragic loss of their baby right when they about to celebrate new life.
“At the other end of the scale – Age UK Horsham and District (formerly known as Age Concern) supports the elderly in our community. We salute all you charities do, and hopefully this event will continue to support you further.”
