BAG PACKING THANK YOU!
A huge thank you to the 17 volunteers (aged 8 - 80) who spent last Saturday bag packing at Booths in St. Annes as part of the Church Road Community Hub fundraising effort. Some spent an hour, some 3, some 5, but all had a great time, and proved to be great ambassadors for Church Road – everybody said so! Not only that, their bag packing skills were praised too and a grand total of £280 was raised. What a team! Many thanks, one and all.
