Christmas at Cleeve Wood raises over £2,000 for charities
Published on: 02 Jan 2015
TWO brilliant causes will reap the rewards of a Christmas event for shoppers and children.
Christmas @ Cleeve Wood shops raised more than £2,000 which will be split between BUST, a breast cancer support charity based at Southmead Hospital and Harmonie-Rose Allen, a one-year-old from Bath who has lost her arms and legs to meningitis.
All stops were pulled out and attractions included a Christmas float, fair rides, Santa’s grotto, pony rides, stalls, hog roast and raffle.
It was supported by Webb’s Flowers, Cleeve Wood Pharmacy, Style Collection and Victoria’s Health and Beauty. Other shops made donations towards the Frenchay Christmas float.
Debbie Webb, who runs Webb’s Flowers, masterminded the special day. She said it went so well she has already booked a date for next year’s festive shindig.
“It was absolutely fantastic! The kids loved it.
“The best part was the fairground and the float as the children just loved those. I’d like to say a big thank you to Albert Rogers who ran the fairground and made a fantastic donation to Harmonie Rose. He was amazing.
“Style Collection were also fabulous and raised £500 just in their shop so I’d like to say another big thank you to all the girls and their clients.
“It was such a success we’ve already got a date for next year - November 29 - and I’ve already booked everybody!”
