RUMBLE IN THE JUMBLE 2015
Returning for its fourth year, Rumble in the Jungle was organized by BBC 1’s Gemma Cairney and the Music Circle. The list of celebrities who donated personal items for this one-of-a-kind jumble sale is long to say the least. And unique items up for grabs included a suave suit from man of the moment, Mark Ronson, one of Annie Lennox’s delectable handbags, and a dapper David Gandy suit.
As well as celebrity donations, Rumble in the Jungle received donated items from big brand names which were sold at jumble sale prices.
There was also a print stand that sold donate work from Robert Hunter, We Three Club, Bread Collective, Paul Rafferty, Print Club London, and Babak Ganjei.
Keeping everyone fed this year was Joe’s Tea Company, Standard Issue who hosted a cake stand, Drink, Shop and Do, who served up more delicious cakes, and The Bowler who dished out gourmet meat balls.
This year’s Rumble in the Jungle raised a whopping £26,000 most of which was used to support The Music Circle’s project that is helping women in Myanmar to more fully participate in the country’s political decisions. Following the Nepal Earthquake, the Music Circle gave £5,000 of the money raised to support Oxfam’s emergency appeal – providing hygiene products to women affected by the disaster.
