BARGAIN hunters can pick up second-hand brick-a-brack, books and clothes today to support military personnel and their families.

Jumble Sales Extra is running the event tomorrow afternoon at Cumnor Village Hall, near Oxford, and has encouraged shoppers to come along for a good cause.

It hopes to raise at least £1,000 for the charity Help for Heroes, which supports British servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured in the line of duty.

Jumble Sales Extra is an initiative set up by four mums, who began their fundraising in reaction to the devastating Boxing Day Tsunami in south east Asia.

They run several jumble sales every year, also featuring a tombola, raffle, tea, cakes, light lunches and refreshments.

Tomorrow's will start at 2pm and run until 4pm.

Their efforts have raised more than £40,400 since the 2004 tragedy for various charities, including the Nasio Trust, the Epilepsy Society and the Cumnor Memories Cafe.

The last sale earlier this year raised £1,312 for Helen & Douglas House children's hospice in Oxford.

This time stalls will be selling books, clothes, toys and a host of other second-hand items.

Anyone who wants to offer their support by giving unwanted goods to the sale can drop them off at the venue in Leys Road.

Donations should be dropped off between 9am and midday.

One of the organisers said the support of Oxford Mail readers 'makes a big difference' to the success of the sales.
