Our branch organised and ran the raffle for the late night shopping event for a third year in a row. This is arranged every year in conjunction with the local Chamber of Trade where we are in charge of the raffle.
The branch donated a £50 Hays Travel voucher and we sourced other prizes from local traders. All the staff were involved and we also sold tickets prior to and on the evening of the event. This encouraged people to come and visit us in store and to see how great the branch looked following our refit in November.
The total amount raised was £655 and a donation of £300 was made to Naomi House and Jack's Place Children's Hospice. The remaining amount helps to fund events that are organised by the Bishops Waltham Chamber of Trade throughout the year for the local community.
It is always a fun evening and everyone comes together in the town to make it a great success.
