Chennai: If you have items that you will never use or do not know how to discard things that you have collected over the years here is someone who will gladly take it from you. It could be anything, even your vehicle. And, in the bargain, you can ensure that what you discarded will help treat a cancer victim.

Vasantha Memorial Trust, which works with cancer patients in the city, will conduct a jumble sale on September 23. Proceeds from the sale will go to the aid of poor cancer patients. This is the eighth year that the jumble sale is being held, J. Ramanathan, managing trustee, said. Last year the sale helped raise Rs. 5.14 lakh.

The trust welcomes donation of domestic appliances, furniture, toys, gifts, vessels, and electrical and electronic goods. Donations of clothes, footwear, cassettes, toiletries and food items are not entertained.

The things to be donated may be deposited with the trust offices on or before Sunday. Call 044 - 23715500 for more details on the sale.
