Best Fit will be running a stall at the annual “Rumble in the Jumble” event - a unique charity sale this weekend that offers music fans a chance to get their hands on some amazing merchandise.

The jumble sale - which takes place tomorrow (Saturday) at London’s Oval Space - sees bands and celebrities donating clothes and other amazing finds to raise money and awareness for women in the DRC – victims of “the world’s most forgotten conflict” – who face constant threats of forced displacement, sexual violence, abduction and extortion.

The likes of Jessie Ware, Bat For Lashes, Metronomy and Alt-J as well as Topman, ASOS, Sonos, Schuh and Marshall Amps are among those donating clothes and other goods for the event.
Best Fit will be staffing the merchandise stall, which will include some amazingly rare and unusual one-offs at incredible prices, including:

- Brett Anderson’s four track, used for demoing the Suede classic ‘He’s Dead’
- Album prints from Universal
- Arcade Fire 12”
- Signed Noah and the Whale posters
- Signed Beady Eye stuff
- Arctic Monkey t-shirts
- Rudimental disks
- Signed Manic Street Preachers photographs
- Donations from Warp, Wichita and Mute Records
- A signed vinyl of Disclosure’s ‘F for You’ and a limited edition signed and numbered tour screen print
- Rudimental have donated a signed Platinum edition of their album and a Limited Edition graffiti T-shirt.

Best Fit are also donating a copy of Lykke Li’s first ever single - a 10” vinyl of “Little Bit”, issued originally in Sweden in 2007 (FACT: we bought it from her personally at midnight show at Camden’s Lock Tavern in late 2007 and she signed for us five years later when we filmed her Best Fit Session).

For those who prefer jumble of the worn variety, you can also get your hands on Elton John’s Versace suit, Joe (Metronomy) Mount’s Repetto shoes, Alt-J’s suit, Lauren Laverne’s Marc Jacobs dresses and Zane Lowe’s jacket.

The Music Circle was formed in spring 2011 and spearheaded by music PR Emily Cooper. Together with fellow PR Laura Martin, they invited a selection of key women across the music industry to come together and use their skills and knowledge to help raise money and awareness for important female related causes that Oxfam supports. Last year the jumble sale raised over £16,000

The event runs from midday to 6pm tomorrow (Saturday, 26 April) at Oval Space in London E2, Entry is £3 and visitors are also asked to donate a bag of jumble. Find out more on the Facebook event page.
