I got my hands on a dress pre-owned by Annie Mac at the jumble sale

I absolutely love a jumble sale and Radio 1′s Gemma Cairney and the Music Circle organised a cracking one at the weekend in association with Oxfam, called Rumble in the Jumble 3. At the Oval Space in London, you could bag yourself brand new items from the likes of Schuh, Dr Marten, ASOS, Whistles and Topshop at low prices, sift through heaps of clothes from the likes of Tinnie Tempah, Jessie Ware, Rudimental and Jameela Jamil, get your make-up done by Smashbox and all this before taking a cake and cocktail pit stop. Bliss.

Throughout the day I helped Caroline Flack flog loads of stuff from her stall which was a lot of fun and despite the fact that I wasn’t there to shop, I ended up buying a dress pre-owned by Annie Mac, some flowery Dr Marten’s and a lovely pair of mens golf shorts which yes, I am planning to wear.

Whilst it was amazing to bag myself some bargains, listen to great DJ sets, take silly pictures, drink cocktails and eat cake all day, the best thing about the entire event was that actually, together we helped raise over £23,000 for women in the Democratic Republic of Congo and they are still counting. For that reason alone it was the best jumble sale ever. So to everyone that came to say hi, shop, donate, eat and play, thank you. Those jumble pennies really did make pounds!
