Designer handbags and vintage silk scarves will be on offer during a unique sale later this month.

A group of fund raisers, on behalf of West Norfolk Mind and Keeping Abreast, have put together the Bag It! sale at the new Thornham Village Hall on Thursday May 15, at 3pm.

With grateful thanks to some very generous donors, the team has already acquired a collection of pre-loved designer bags, shoe bags, wallets and vintage silk scarves including Longchamp, Russell & Bromley, Hobbs, Radley, Osprey and Gucci.

Tickets, which cost £15, includes a superb traditional afternoon tea.

The tea, preserves, Dundee cake and all other recipes will be provided by Fortnum and Mason and presented on a delicate bone china tea service.

Organiser Alex Ware said: “We are very excited about this event which we’ve themed on a taste of Piccadilly, London on the wild Norfolk coast and invite ladies to dress for ‘afternoon tea’ if they wish. We would also encourage those people coming who may have a pre-loved bag in their wardrobe to bring it along on the day for us to sell. The funds raised will provide much needed finance for two excellent local charities”
