December Prize Draw Results
1st Prize: £684
2nd Prize: £342
3rd Prize: £114
During this difficult time we are really pleased and proud that we have been able to live up to our statement “ for the community by the community” Your support has been amazing and we have been able to maintain our paper deliveries, opening the shop for two hours daily plus taking and delivering orders to those self-isolating or maintaining stricter safety measures due to age or health issues.
For those of you who follow the shops fortunes you will know that we depend on two additional funding streams to remain solvent which are the Open Gardens event in June each year and the 50/50 club. These give us an added £7,000 per year which has been essential for ongoing viability of the shop. It is clear that the open gardens weekend will not take place although we are working on a virtual event, more as a morale booster than a money spinner so watch this space!
For this reason we are asking that you consider joining the 50/50 club. For some of you it may be that you’ve always meant to do it but just didn’t get around to it or one person in the family has a membership but there is no limit to the amount of entries you have. It is just £5 per month with prizes of over £1,100 split between the three winners each quarter.
To join you simply need to collect a pack from the shop or download a form with details on by clicking the icon at the bottom of this article and arrange a standing order which can be done on line or by posting to your bank. Then if you either email or telephone Gill Scarlett you will be entered into the next draw. Contact details are:
or 01283 821049. If this is something you think you would like to do then please do it now to ensure we can continue to serve the communities of Marchington, The Woodlands, Forestside and Birch Cross.
