THE little village of Sutton St James was turned into a massive charity drive sale on Sunday, with 38 households taking part.

Organiser Tina McNeil, of Chapelgate, said 38 homes chose to turn out unwanted items, each one paying £7 to cover advertising and to raise funds for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.

The event raised £352 and unsold items donated to the charity will continue to raise funds.

Tina said an air ambulance that landed on the village green twice in recent weeks helped raise awareness of the importance of the emergency service.
