AN "everything must go" jumble sale taking place on the Black Isle this Saturday (February 15) promises to be a treasure trove of delights for curious browsers.

The charity which was formed to help bridge gaps in care for older people on the Black Isle is preparing to sell the entire contents of a container full of pre-loved donations which it now needs to find new homes from.

Billed "a gigantic jumble and book sale", the event is scheduled for the Fortrose Academy theatre between 11am and 2pm.

One of the organisers, Freida McKenzie, said: "We've been very lucky at Black Isle Cares and have had some fantastic donations. We've got nowhere to store them anymore and we need to empty the container they have been in. So we are literally selling everything that's in there."

Items range from suitcases to ornaments to lamps to dishes and toys.

Ms McKenzie joked: "I'm sure there are some hidden treasures in there. The only way to find out is to come along to the sale."

The storage unit has now been emptied and its contents prepared for sale.

A baking stall and refreshments adds to the appeal of the event.

She added: "We like nice round figures so nothing is 75p. Make us an offer in £s or 50p and you can have a bargain. We also have a treasure map so you can dig up £20 buried somewhere in the islands."

Profits will help fund the meals on wheels service which runs as a cooperative venture on the peninsula.
