A GARDEN centre near Weston-super-Mare is hosting a series of charity car boot sales.

Freewheelers

Emergency Voluntary Service (Freewheelers EVS), which transports medical

supplies to hospitals in Somerset, will be organising the events at Sanders

Garden World in Brent Knoll every Friday from August 5 until November (2011).

Allan

Roberts, one of the charity's volunteers, said:

"We began hosting weekly car boot sales at Sanders Garden World in March this

year and to date they have been a great success. So far this year we have

raised £2,000.

"They

will take place every Friday from 10am until approximately 3pm, weather

permitting, until November

"We are organising the car boot sales to help raise

vital money for Freewheelers EVS.

"Entry to the public is free but we hope those

who attend will make donations to the charity."

Freewheelers

EVS is a registered charity that transports items on specially adapted

motorcycles, which are equipped with blue lights and sirens for emergency use,

from hospital to hospital in Somerset and beyond.

The

organisation, which was founded in 1991, provides an out of hours back up

service for the NHS.

Allan

added: "For people wishing to sell their goods it will cost £5 per car for two

tables and £7 per car for four tables.

"The event is not for market stallholders

or for anyone who wishes to sell weapons, plants or fake or imitation items.

Large vans, trailers and motorhomes are also prohibited.

"We

are very grateful to staff at the garden centre for giving us the space to host

these events. We hope to raise a good sum of money for Freewheelers EVS

throughout the year."

The car boots run

from 10am until approximately 3pm.
