Aberlour Orphanage Jupp Sales

Evelyn remembers a Jupp Sale in Aberlour in 1953. It was held in a hall near the orphanage to raise funds. It sold everything including bric a brac and clothing. She was only six at the time but she remembers it as being very busy. The sale items were donated from local people as far as she knows. Used to see a lorry coming through the village of Rothes with a cover over it. Inside were the orphans dressed in brown and off on a trip somewhere.

The origin of the Jupp sales was Canon Jupp who believed  “that every child had the ability to grow up and flourish in society, not withstanding the origins of their birth”.
