we’ve had a good initial response from my call for support for our Oxfam race night – but I would still like to encourage anyone that hasn’t been in contact yet to come forward and help sponsor a race, or take a table of tickets.
The event takes part at the South Holland Centre in Spalding on Saturday, June 16.
I should also like to correct any misunderstanding that might have arisen from the wording in my first letter. All monies raised by the event will go direct to Oxfam to help continue their great work.
We hope the success of the event and the good feeling it creates will help the Spalding shop achieve a higher profile in the town which can only be a good thing in these tough times.
Any corporate decision on continuing in one shop or another is a separate matter and we don’t really want to describe the event as an attempt “to save the Spalding shop”.
At the end of the day Oxfam is a great charity and we want to raise as much money as possible for them to go on and do as much good work as possible!
