Moonlight Walk Success
A massive thank you to the companies and businesses that supported and assisted our Moonlight Walk. A special thank you to the following: Cannon Cars, First Group, Sainsbury’s, South London Press & Mercury, Bromley Borough News and Skanska.
We raised over £14,000 with over 200 walkers! From helping us from promotion right through to setting up on the night: thank you.
Lloyds Commercial Banking Super-Volunteers
Lloyds have astounded St Christopher’s with their incredible generosity in giving us over 50 man-days of volunteering; with three more helping us hand out leaflets for our Christmas Market. Having set the bar in April with Shop Wars, competing against each other and the Lloyds East Dulwich branch in 10 of our shops, Lloyds Bank has been a fantastic supporter of St Christopher’s in 2016. Thank you.
Welcome In2 Papadam
We would like to welcome In2 Papadam to the St Christopher’s fold, who have supported us by very generously organising a charity night, donating 25% of profits to St Christopher’s. This was an enormous success, raising £600 for the hospice! And if that wasn’t enough they sponsored our Christmas Market in Orpington on Saturday 26 November, which went on to raise over £8,000. Thank you.
Shop Wars 2016 Comes to a Close
Legal and General Group’s Shop Wars in October signalled the closing of the Shop Wars season for 2016. They did fantastically well, making an overall 56% increase with total sales and fundraising, a fitting end to a brilliant season. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you that’s taken part this year; we’ve seen the most shops taken over with wonderful costumes and ingenious creativity; thank you and I look forward to welcoming both new and veteran competitors next spring!
