A TENTED 'village’ is up for sale.
More than 200 pop-up tents, camping chairs and laundered sleeping bags are being sold in the run-up to next month’s Isle of Wight Festival.
The event, and a similar sale of left-behind festival tents before September’s Bestival, raises valuable cash for the Isle of Wight’s young people’s charity, Challenge and Adventure.
"All the tents are salvaged and not only does their sale raise funds to enable us to provide challenging activities to more young people but it is extremely valuable recycling," said the charity’s Karen Eeles.
"Tony Wake has very generously allowed us to use his warehouse — Unit 5-6, Barry Way on Riverway Industrial Estate in Newport, where people can see all the tents erected."
Tents are £10, chairs £4 and sleeping bags £5 in the sale on Saturday, May 31, from 10am to 2pm.
