09/04/10 Firms dig deep

ORGANISERS of a charity gala are appealing to businesses to dig deep and contribute to the event’s Grand Raffle.

The gala will take place on Wednesday, June 19, in Fiskerton and last year raised £2,500 for various causes.

This year, all the money raised will be split between the Air Ambulance based at RAF Waddington, the Queens Park School for children with profound learning difficulties and the Fiskerton Primary School.

Organiser Barry Canner said: “To be able to hold the raffle, we must rely on the goodwill of businesses.

“Every year, we have found it to be the biggest fundraiser as we are able to sell tickets in advance.”

To donate a prize, call Mr Canner on (01522) 752928.
