Joyce Long in memory garden sale
12 April 2016
The late great Joyce Long may have died late last year, but daughter Angela Alden is having one last garden sale in her memory to raise money for Southend Hospital’s Keyhole Cancer Appeal.
The sale will be at the charity superstar's home, 22, Park Road,
Thundersley, from Monday April 25 to Saturday April 30, running
from 9am to 4pm.
Bric-a-brac, old furniture, toys and other vintage items donated
by well-wishers will be on sale.
Joyce, who raised more than £1.5 million for Southend Hospital
over three decades, died last December at the age of 86. The
great-gran used to raise around £12,000 a year for the hospital
from the proceeds of three seasonal garden sales held at her
Angela, 66, said: "The family wanted to do a spring sale. We
have got quite a bit of stuff here. It won't be the same as when
Joyce ran them, but we will do our best."
To offer a donation, please call Joyce's daughter, Angie, on
01268 751767, and please do not drop off at the house. From approx.
9am to 4pm.
