As 2020 draws to a close ( thank goodness), I wanted to bring some Christmas spirit by organising a raffle. I have chosen to fundraise for Bromley Brighter Beginnings who has seen a surge in referrals due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Local businesses have come donated £800 worth of gifts which will make up 3 huge hampers. Raffle tickets are now on sale at £2 each and we will be drawing the winners on Monday 21st December at 4pm.
It has been a pretty tough year, so I wanted to support a local charity. I have chosen Bromley Brighter Beginnings as they help families provide essential baby, child or household items to local families in financial hardship, many of whom are fleeing from domestic violence. During the first national lockdown, domestic violence cases rose significantly.
From now… Up until 21st December.
Hampers will need to be collected from Our Kitchen
