Donations raised from Tesco’s Express collection tins….

Donations raised from Tesco’s Express collection tins….

It with sad regret that our partnership with Tesco’s Express in Worksop is coming to an end, due to the store shutting down. We have had an amazing partnership with them, where they have very generously allowed us to place our collection tins in their store, allowing us to raise donations, as well as gifting us with raffle prizes for our Charity Entertainment Night which we held back in November.

Thank you to everyone who has put a donation in our tins in the last 5 months, we’re extremely grateful.

Today we collected our tins for the final time and £28 was raised throughout February, so thank you again to everyone who has put donations in our tins, and to Tesco’s Express!
