A TABLE TOP sale in Marlpool has raised £68 for animal charities.

The sale was organised by Sheila Carter, a children’s centre caretaker, in her own garden.

Sheila invited Brinsley Animal Rescue, German Shepherd Rescue, Animal Magic, based in Ilkeston, who brought Bailey the barn owl, and the St Francis Cats Hospice.

The charities all raised money from their own stalls.

Animal lover Sheila decided to stage event after taking in a rescue dog called Gina, who is a German Shepherd.

She said: “We hope to have another one in the autumn.

“It’s a cause that’s close to my heart.”
