We are very keen to support the local community and regularly hold raffles, bake sales and run special trips to help raise funds for worthy causes. In 2017 we have raised £522 for St Mary's PTFA through running a charity Christmas coach trip to Edinburgh.
We have sponsored the new football kit for Forest Hall Juniors football club - the lads looked so smart when they came to visit us to show off their tops.
We also provided Easter Eggs for the Easter competition at Amberley First School - and were lucky enough to be able to go along and watch their wonderful Easter performance and judge the beautiful bonnets and amazing egg displays - all the girls and boys worked so hard.
Through donations in-store we have raised over £60 for the British Heart Foundation - a cause that is very dear to us - Karen (our Foreign Exchange cashier) completed a sponsored walk in May - along Hadrians Wall, she ached for days afterwards!!
Currently we are supporting the Northern Ice Wheelchair curling team - you can have a chance to win a £50 Hays Travel Voucher if you buy a raffle ticket before the end of June - all money raised will be donated to the team so they can buy equipment. And finally, for the first time this year, we are also running a summer charity coach day - out. This time to Whitby in June - the money raised from this day out will be split between Astley Community High School and St Mary's - ensuring the local children and young people have a wonderful end to their year.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us so far!! Keep an eye on our Facebook page to find out about our latest fund-raising and don't forget to come along and buy a raffle ticket!
