Local residents and visitors in Carlisle will be able to drop off and pick up unwanted household items at an event on Saturday 1 July.
Called 'Give and Take' day, people interested in taking away items, don't have to bring any in exchange.
Described as a free jumble sale, Give and Take is run by Cumbria County council and Sustainable Carlisle.
It will take place at the Trinity Area Community Trust (TACT), at Trinity Church Hall on Wigton Road, Carlisle, between 10am and 12pm.
Whether it’s clothing, sports equipment, old tools, a house full of toys, books, some dishwasher tablets, office equipment - bring it along – it might be just what someone else in our community is looking for!
