Again this year, due to the generosity of Brian and Doreen Wells, there will be a Christmas cake raffle. Tickets will be 25p each and will also be on sale from 19th November. The draw will take place on Wednesday 5th December.
The staff Christmas lunch will be free this year. It will be funded from the lottery account, to which staff contribute, and a generous donation. Will all staff who wish to partake please sign the Christmas lunch signing in sheet indicating the day of their choice as this will help to ascertain how many to cook for each day. Lunch will be served at 12 noon to allow time for Christmas entertainment.
The centre will then close for Christmas on 13th December, and re-open on Wednesday 2nd January. As we are closed on Monday 31st December members who wish to attend on the Wednesday or Thursday will be very welcome to do so. Please inform David if you wish to attend on either of these days.
There will be no Lottery during the two week closure. Lottery will commence again when we re-open on Wednesday 2nd January 2013.
Members will receive a present during the morning of the Christmas lunch and voluntary staff will be presented with a small gift.
A Christmas donation box will be available and circulated for anyone who wishes to donate money to charity instead of sending Christmas cards. The committee agreed that all proceeds will be donated to the Big C fund.
