December 2007 - what's happening ??
Well - what a busy time we had, I think we nearly forgot our own names, this is a very busy time for the group. We write lots of letters to companies asking for donations to our Xmas grand draw, waiting for reponses, collecting the prizes, etc, and then having to have the tickets printed ready for the draw, then selling the tickets
We had some really good prizes on offer again this year, ( Pl see our supporters page for details ), and managed to increase on our sales of tickets this year, raising a massive £600 clear profit for the park funds- this year a local resident ( Diane ) donated the price of the costs for printing the tickets - which was so generous and very much appreciated by the group. Thank you Diane .
Then of course we had our famous Reindeer Dust / Food parcels on sale at a pound a bag, which we sold through friends, relatives, school, and the Sunflower Children's Centre.
They were very popular and we had two ladies from the community who donated hours of their time making them from scratch to ensure that the reindeers found their way to the doors of the local kids. All the effort paid off and we raised £240, for the park- thanks to all that assisted with this and to those who supported the group by purchasing the raffle tickets and the reindeer food.
