As we are now Sainsbury’s Colton’s Charity of the Year they have started to arrange charity events to help us to raise much needed funds to help continue and improve our services within the local community. They have arranged a full weekend of events next week on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September.
As they are making such a huge effort on our behalf it would be great if we could help them out with volunteers.
If you have a spare hour on either day for the in store events please do let me know so that I can make necessary arrangements on firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to take part in the road cycling event please register direct online following the instructions below. Just to reiterate that you don’t have to be a keen cyclist to take part in this – children, young people and families are welcome to be involved. You don’t even have to do the entire route. Just whatever suits you.
