A CHARITY clothes sale took more than £56,000 over the weekend.

The Rutland Macmillan Clothing Sale, which took place on Friday and Saturday, at Barnsdale Lodge, was held to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Trish Ruddle, one of the organisers, said it was a “huge success”.

She said: “It went fantastically well. We were delighted. We don’t yet know how much of that is profit but we are expecting it to be up on last year’s profit of £46,000.”
