Car Boot Sale

**Announcement -

Please be advised there are no plans to reopen The Countess Car Boot Sale this year (2023).
When we are able to open we will make the announcement on our website and Facebook page ( We know this may be disappointing news but the safety of all who take part in our fundraising events will remain, as always, our priority.
Thank you for your support!**

The Car Boot Sales were set up originally with the purpose of raising money to help purchase a scanner, but proved to be so popular with the local public that they have continued ever since. Over the years, the money raised has been used to support several of the Hospital's major fundraising appeals.

The Car Boot Sales are organised by volunteer Sue Elphick MBE, and the Countess of Chester Hospital is very grateful to Sue for her support and commitment to our charity.
