GENEROUS staff at Bakkavor in Spalding are the latest to back the Two Lips campaign with a £2,000 donation.

The cash from the staff shop has taken the running tally for the charity week on May 14-21 to more than £4,000.

Two Lips, which is being run by the Rotary Club of South Holland and supported by the Spalding Guardian, will see all the money raised from a jam-packed week of events divided between a number of worthy local causes.

Spalding’s Phab, the League of Friends of the Spalding Hospitals, the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, Scouts and Guides have all been chosen because they make a difference to those living in the south of the county.

A proportion will also go to Rotary International in aid of their nationally selected charities.

Rotary Club of Spalding president Alan Porter said: “The campaign is going very well. The community are starting to give their support to it now.

“Hopefully more of the local community will get behind it and the charities will be pleased by the results.”

The donation from Bakkavor has put the campaign well on its way to reaching its goal of more than £10,000.

Now the organisers are calling on Spalding Guardian readers to pitch in their support by holding a fundraising event in May.

This could be a fancy dress day, cake stalls, talent show or testing your strength and stamina in a sporting event.

Volunteers are also needed to sell special Two Lips whistles throughout the week for donations of 50p or above.

When you have your idea or would like to become a volunteer, simply pick up a registration form from any Rotary Club of Spalding member or from the Spalding Guardian and Lincolnshire Free Press offices in The Crescent, Spalding.
