Christmas lights - fundraising for charity
« on: Nov 30, 2009, 08:39 »
Even after the vile weather of yesterday, we got our Christmas lights up this weekend, ready to go on at 4.30pm 1st December.

They'll be on from 1st December 4.30pm until about 9pm or so, each day until just after Christmas and this year the charity we are collecting for is Help For Heroes

So if you'd like to support the cause or just look at the lights, please come along, enjoy the lights and help us raise money for Help for Heroes - if you need the full address plmk, Carrville, Durham, not far from Shell petrol station, can be seen from A690/A1M/Carrville High Street.  All money raised goes to the charity we take nothing for the cost of electric, decorations etc.

Thanks

Thanks to everyone who supported us, the lights came down a few days early (we had to, trying to judge the forecast, and it wasn't fun trying to haul up lights hideen under snow, or go up ladders balanced on sheet ice), on 29th December, we raised £500.78, which was great, as once the snow came way back when, we had very few viewers

Well done.
Shame about the weather but thats the way it goes.
I like the story of the little boy who asked you if Santa lived there
Pure fantasy world and so much pleasure given with 4 days of upheaval in the putting up and taking down
One thing - can we do it in nice weather next time.
