Cancer Research UK charity sale - LPs / hifi bits & bobs

Recommended Posts

At last year's Scalford show I ran a charity sale on behalf of Cancer Research UK, and it made an astonishing £400+ for the charity. :shock::^

- I had been hoping for £100 or so, but the generosity of show goers was amazing - I am damn sure I didn't sell that much worth of stuff, it must have been top-up cash donations that made the big difference.

Superb effort, folks. :notworthy:

I plan to run a sale again on behalf of the charity this year, and Stu (Russ Abbott) has kindly allowed me to use a corner of his HUGE room to run the sale. :^ Somerby, 1st floor.

As last year, if anyone cares to bring along saleable LPs, CDs, hifi bits etc to donate for sale for the charity then that will be fab. :flowers:

I'll be there or around from 8.00-ish Sunday morning.

Thinking about it I may have to ask to join in with this for the records I have, as it will become fairly obvious once we are there why we need to get them moved on sharpish.

Hi Jerry,

I should have spoke to you sooner about this (my apologies for not mentioning sooner) but I have a fairly sizeable box of bits and bats ranging from things like dvd players, cd players, interconnects, speaker cables, speakers, an LCD TV, a perfectly fine working home cinema projector, a Cyrus centre speaker, some spikes, a few HDMI cables, some racking, a PC, a laptop, plus various other hi-fi\AV kit that I was going to put on the spirit of the wam when I had chance for the exact same charity.

I haven't had chance to do it so far so this is the perfect opportunity. Can I just give you all this kit for your room sale and whatever you don't manage to sell you can either give me it back and I'll give it to my local cancer research shop or I\we can put it on the spirit of the wam and if anyone thinks It's worth a quid or two they can donate.

I did consider donating some of my old CD collection from my raving youth days but I don't think there anyone in the wam who is into old school rave\house music let alone hard house and hard trance.

If any of you are though.....pm me.

Phantabulous, John. :^:^

Yup, bring along whatever you can and yes (please!!) at the end of the day take it away again if any hasn't sold! :D

I've a couple of CD players of my own I'll be putting up for sale for the charity - I was going to 'advertise' them on this thread a week or so in advance of the Show.

If you can do the same for your stuff that would be great. A simple list will be fine.

My thinking is that it will give folks the chance to do a bit of Goggling etc and decide if they are interested.

Also, I think it's wrong to pre-judge what folks might be interested in - there's a pretty broad spectrum of tastes on the Wam (to say the least! :P) and it's not just Wammers who attend anyway - so, yep, bring all the music and kit you can and let's see what goes!

There's lots of room in Stu's Somerby room (which is why I asked him if he would host the sale), so the more the merrier and the more £££ for Cancer Research. :^

Hi Jerry,

I've got a couple of pairs of decent interconnects you can have for the sale.

I'm not going to able to make it this year, but PM me your address and I'll pop them in the post.

That's great, Jim.

PM on its way. :)

I'm loking forward to this bring and buy sale and am after another CD player so will be keeping an eye on this thread for the updates.

Well done Jerry.

I'll drop some bits off on the morning, (cables etc), and let's hope you raise a bundle for this worthy charity.

I have a little bundle of CDs that I can leave on your table - having recently been through my CDs I discovered some doubles.

Thanks guys :^

AudioAl has offered to donate this lovely hifi rack :^ thanks Allen.

If anyone wants it for say £40 or whatever, it would be best if someone said so in advance so it wasn't lugged along in vain!

Obviously (?) the more someone is willing to pay the better as it's for The Cause. :)

I understand that it is a bit tatty.

My wife also wants to get in on the donations to your worthwhile charity and would like to offer my Ringmat 330 MKII XLR (I think).
