A supermarket in Pocklington made use of its empty car park on Easter Sunday by holding a car boot sale to raise much-needed funds for its charity of the year.

Sainsbury’s, on The Balk, held the event in aid of Young People Count, which supports youngsters in the Pocklington area.

The car boot sale raised £100 for the charity, which is all the proceeds from the car/pitch fee of £5.

Michele Jones, PR ambassador at Pocklington’s Sainsbury’s, said: “We wanted to raise money for our charity of the year because shortly we pick a new one. We also wanted to make use of the car park as we were shut.”There was a good turnout. It was a nice and jolly atmosphere.”
Youngsters from Pocklington’s Woldgate College attended the event to raise money for their expedition to Malawi. They each have to raise £3,500.
