A massive “yard sale” held by Heirloom Linens July 11 raised more than $16,000 for Victoria Hospice.

Thrifty Foods donated food and drink and Chef Anna, from the Broadmead Village store, did all the cooking, contributing $840 to the total.

This sale, which took place out front the Broadmead store, is part of Heirloom Linens’ 12 Months of Giving Program, which aims to raise money for a different charity each month.

The program started in May to mark the 20th anniversary of Heirloom Linens. Other beneficiaries have included Women in Need and the Prostate Centre.
