Roche Brass Band ensemble delights Truro Car Boot customers! Back this SUNDAY with a great raffle 5 tickets for £1.00Posted: 04/12/2018
What a pleasant surprise for all buyers and sellers who came to TRURO on Sunday and for them to be so entertained with the music of The Roche Brass ensemble who played some delightful Christmas Carols.
Our Amelia has played in the band for several years and her mum Johanna used to play the Bass until recently. They conducted a super cheap raffle with some great prizes with tickets only 5 for £1.00. Lots of great compliments!
The ensemble will return this coming Sunday when hopefully they will have a dry day with sellers setting up in the open air on the hard-standing Car Park at the rear of the Cattle Market.
The Roche ensemble are available for private bookings and if you really want a great treat for that special occasion why not use the whole band for a realistic fee!
All enquiries to;nfo@rochebrass.co.uk

Well entertaining reminded me of my PONTINS days when we used to have Brass Bands Week where competitors from all over the country would arrive in coaches galore to take part in a hotly contested competition for the best band of the week. Great memories.
Thank you Amelia and husband Rob! Great!!
WELCOME to Roche Brass Band

KENYA TRIP Rhiannon's Update;Posted: 03/12/2018
UPDATE:

Hello!

I am very close to reaching the amount needed to go to Kenya thanks to all the wonderful people who have donated items for me to sell in the car boots.

I'm happy to say that Geoff has allowed me to do a £1 stall that I'll be doing soon in order to raise that last little bit! (I will give an exact date closer to the time) so if you wanted to pop along and show your support it would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks,

Rhiannon X

Geoff Says!
We are absolutely delighted to help this young lady Rhiannon and her friends to raise money towards this wonderful Charity effort The Kenya Expedition for 2019.

May I ask all sellers if they would kindly consider to donate any sellable items towards this charity event please, if you have just a small carrier bag of 'SELLABLE' items that Rhiannon can sell towards this genuine effort to help those less fortunate than ourselves then respectfully I would ask you to give generously and leave your donations with either Rhiannon or one of my team members please!

Many thanks and good luck to Rhiannon and her team, we will give updates over the coming months. Thank you from Geoff and all of the Car Boots Cornwall teams. Good Luck. Geoff. X

Hello!

I'm Rhiannon Wooldridge and next summer in 2019 I will be heading out to Kenya in East Africa, where around 51% of the population live in absolute poverty. I will be out there for 4 weeks, making a difference towards:
1.) Education
2.) Housing
3.) Healthcare and sanitation
4.) Food and water security
5.) Environmental protection
6.) Sustainable livelihoods.

I will be doing this with Camps Internationals, who have over 100 humanitarian projects, and through Newquay Tretherras School, where a dozen or so more students are joining me on this trip.

On this trip we will be:
1. Building Desks for school children who would otherwise be sat on the floor.
2. Building classrooms to provide children with safe places to learn.
3. Digging elephant watering holes, helping the elephants to survive the dry season.
4. Making ethical deterrents to protect local crops, reducing elephant poaching and increasing crop production.
5. Rhino sanctuary maintenance work as they are hugely endangered.
6. Goat de-worming.
7. Installing fresh water tanks at schools and villages.

We have chosen to go to Kenya for 3 main reasons:
- 42% of Kenyans live below the poverty line.
- Nearly half of the population live on less than $1 a day.
- Average life expectancy is 55 years.


I have been doing, and will continually be doing, numerous events to raise just under £4000 to embark on the expedition.

One of the ways I have been raising money is through selling items in car boots. Geoff has generously offered me a free stall, where most of the items have very kindly been donated, and from this I have made around £300. From doing the car boots Geoff had also offered me a job and all the money which I get paid also contributes to the £4000 needed to go to Kenya. So a big thanks to Geoff!
If you have any unwanted items that you want to donate then please email me at rhiannonwooldridge@hotmail.com.

On Sunday the 16th of September I will be hosting a coffee morning with Shannon Wright, who is also going on the trip. It is at Goonhavern Village hall at 10:00-12:00. There will be a variety of cakes, other refreshments and raffle prizes, not to mention live acoustic music from our local singer Tess! (see poster image for more information). Your can also look on my Kenya Expedition Facebook page: @Kenyacharitytrip. Anyone is welcome, the more the merrier!

In the Easter holidays my friend, Hannah Williams, and I are going to do a sponsored walk. The walk we will be doing is the West Highland Way in Scotland. We are aiming to complete it within 5 days during the Easter holidays 2019. The 100 mile walk starts at Milngavie (Glasgow) and finishes at Fort William. The West Highland Way is a challenging walk over multiple terrains from mountains and lochs, to moorlands and farmlands. Any donations would of course be greatly appreciated. If you would like to generously donate then please visit my Just giving crowd funding page (see below)

Any donations and sponsorship are hugely appreciated and I'm open to any suggestions on fundraising ideas, again my Facebook page is @kenyacharitytrip, my just giving is https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rhiannon-wooldridge and my email is rhiannonwooldridge@hotmail.com. I will also be working at the car boots in Newquay and Truro and will be hopefully be selling at more of Geoff locations (my stall has a few small signs on it about my trip!).

Thanks!
Rhiannon's KENYA trip!

Posted SUNDAY on Home Page on 28th OctoberPosted: 28/10/2018

Calling all children run your own Toy-Fair stall. Here is a big opportunity and a challenge for all you young kids to tidy your bedrooms up and sort out all the toys you do not want any more, clean them up find their original boxes if possible. Plan how much you will charge for the toys so you can make yourself some cash (dosh) to buy mum & dad Chrissy Presies (what a lovely thought) then ask mum or dad to bring you to the Car Boot Sale and if your car is at least HALF-FULL of toys I will only charge you £4.00 to sell but if you are rich and have an estate car or a 4 x 4 I will reduce the selling charge to £5.00!

Now then girls and lads when you arrive it is you that has to ask for the discount your driver must not ask on your behalf see. Anyway, I will take a look at the stalls and the best one will get a FREE to sell stall for your next visit. We had a lad last year who loaded up his dads car and he to took over £140.00 in two hours! So it's all up to you the offer is there, use it don't abuse it-that's my job!! Next thing is for you'all to make sure that some cheeky bugger does NOT STEAL anything FROM YOUR STALL. Be alert pay attention and be a business person for the day,you should enjoy it!! Money, money, DOSH!! Adults, help the kids out with this one please, have a good clear out with them! How many time have you said "clear out all these toys FFS" ffs = 'fer flips sake for the kids' but for adults it's the real FFS!! Geoff x
