A family of 11 left the secluded Christian community earlier this month, and they're selling up their gear.

A TradeMe auction for Gloriavale clothing has garnered huge interest.

A family of 11 left the secluded Christian community earlier this month, and are currently being hosted by Timaru couple Graham and Liz Gregory, as reported in the Timaru Herald.

The couple has set up a Givealittle page, which has already raised over $11,000 of the $50,000 target.

According to the page, the funds will go towards setting up a house and purchasing an 11-12 seater van for the family.
