Christmas has come early for an annual campaign that helps charities in Spalding. A raffle offering £250 worth of DIY equipment is being run by Homebase in aid of Spalding Rotary Club’s Two Lips campaign. John Ralph, of the Rotary Club, said the offer of help came as a welcomed surprise. He said: “We were just drumming up support for next year’s campaign at Homebase and they offered to run a raffle for us now.” Tickets will be on sale at Homebase in Westlode Street until Sunday, December 23, when the raffle will be drawn. Last year the Two Lips campaign, which was run in May and is supported by the Spalding Guardian, reached its target of £10,000 for local charities.
