A COUPLE are clearing out their unwanted household rubbish and making money for charity in the process.

Tim and Trish Bonnett had a TV crew at their home filming them for Trash to Cash, a new show to be broadcast in the spring.

The BBC1 show's experts, valuers and handymen have helped restore and repair a whole host of items which will go on sale in front of the cameras next Friday, February 1 - and you are invited along.

These include one of rock fan Tim's old guitars, his collection of DIY, motoring and gardening tools, a huge collection of old videos and loads of general household bric-a-brac that the family no longer need.

Money from the sale will go towards WGC-based Herts Action on Disability (HAD), of which Tim, a former policeman, is a director.

Tim said: "It's great to be able to help HAD as this year is the organisation's 50th anniversary."

Trish said: "With three grown-up children away from home, we seem to have accumulated quite a lot of clutter over the years.

"To be able to clear out lots of it and make some money for a worthwhile cause is great news."

If you would like to go along to the house sale in Whitehill Road, Hitchin, and pick up a bargain while the cameras are rolling, you can contact Tim on 07860 538823 for more details.
