About 120 tents which were abandoned at Glastonbury Festival and collected by firefighters from Cornwall have been sold for charity.
The tents, as well as 50 chairs, gazebos and inflatable mattresses, were cleaned by the firefighters before being sold at Hayle Rugby Club.
Almost £2,500 has been raised for the Fire Fighters Charity.
Organiser Mike Glanville said he hopes to collect hundreds more next year.
The firefighters came up with the idea of recycling the equipment after noticing how much was left at Worthy Farm in Somerset once the crowds had left.
The Fire Fighters Charity provides support for the fire and rescue community and their families.
