The fundraising efforts of Chatham High School took a positive hit in the wake of their car boot sale last weekend.
The sale was designed to raise funds for students to attend the Luminosity Youth Summit in Port Macquarie next month while doubling as an opportunity for the school to have a clean-out of old gear.
Everything from furniture, backpacks, chairs, clothes, sporting equipment and fresh vegetables were snapped up at bargain prices.
With plenty of quality items leaving the school gates, community liaison officer Jodie Bird said buyers were left wanting more.
"The day went really well, with people asking when we are holding the next one," Jodie said.
Year 12 buskers provided the soundtrack to the day while hospitality students manned the barbecue and served great coffee and awesome slices.
With the funds, several students are locked in for the summit.
"We raised enough money on the day to send another three students to Luminosity," Jodie said.
But there's more work to be done, with the school to continue fundraising in the lead up to the summit.
The summit, taking place between July 24 and 26, involves a series of workshops, presentations and interactive sessions designed to spark creativity, excellence and entrepreneurship within young people.
