House to house collections
Well! Wow! Yowee!
Thank you to all who contributed to our recent house to house collections.
The final total is £2984!!! This is an amazing achievement for 2014!!
Our project for 2015 is to extend our local collections to see if we can exceed this years fabulous total!
Collection at Tesco Store
The League was again grateful to Tesco for allowing to collect at their London Road store for two days recently. As our Thursday date approached, we were very apprehensive about the effect of the road works nearby. Reports told us that, during the five day road closure, Tesco was a ‘ghost store’. Thankfully, with the schools going back, the roads were reopened early on Thursday morning and customers returned to the store just in time for our collection.
We say a very big thank you to so many people who popped money into our boxes, no matter what the amount. The final sum collected was £1176.76 – plus a 1p Early Learning Centre token!
Not only did we receive money but we also received very many supportive comments about the hospital and the need to ensure its continuing vital service to the community. That is one of our fundamental objectives which is always in the forefront of our work.”
