A car boot sale is a new fundraising venture for Wilberforce. The first will be on Saturday 14 June at the Wilberforce headquarters car park in Huntington. The usual York car boot on the Knavesmire will not be held on this day. All proceeds will go to supporting our work with people with sight loss and other disabilities.

Pitches must be pre-booked and, as there are only about 20 spaces available in the Wilberforce car park, early booking is advised (see below). Cost for a ‘normal’ car is £10, for a large car (eg Volvo estate) is £12. Large vans cannot be accommodated and sales must be from the boot end of the car only. A small table, no longer than the width of the parking space, can be erected outside the boot to display items.

There will be no entry charge for buyers.

The car boot will be open to the public from 10.00am till 2.00pm, set up time being from 9.00am till 10.00am. The site must be cleared by 3.00pm. However, due to the size of the car park it will not be possible for cars to leave until 2.00pm.

To book a pitch, telephone 01904 760037 (Monday – Friday) or email enquiries@wilberforcetrust.org.uk. For further details please call Anne Parkinson on 01904 760037.

The Wilberforce headquarters are at 49 North Moor Road, Huntington, York YO32 9QN.
