Soroptimist International of Shepparton volunteers have come together for another mammoth charity garage sale, this time setting up shop behind Shepparton Market, Benalla Rd, Shepparton.

With something for everyone — household items, furniture, toys, clothing, books, plants and more — there is sure to be a generous donation made to a great cause.

Fundraising committee member Margaret Webster said the selection of donations this year had grown significantly.

‘‘A lot of our donations are from people who are downsizing and we get some really good quality material,’’ Mrs Webster said.

‘‘Everything has been donated over the last 12 months and been stored in storage sheds around the community.’’

Anything not sold will be donated to another charity in need.

‘‘When it’s all finished we pack up what’s left and donate it to another charity that’s needing a top up and we start a fresh again,’’ Mrs Webster said.

The Soroptimist International of Shepparton’s mammoth garage sale runs for another weekend so plenty of bargains can be snapped up.

The garage sale is open today from 8.30am to 3pm, Thursday from 9.30am to 3.30pm, Friday from 9am to 3pm and Saturday from 8am to 3pm at the rear of Shepparton Market, 91 Benalla Rd, Shepparton.
