Thank you golf club and Asda!
CARLISLE Mencap had two stalls on the same day raising money for our charity at Carlisle Golf Club and Asda Kingstown!
The ladies' section at Carlisle Golf Club held a Local Charity Day and Christmas Fayre at the clubhouse in Aglionby on November 23. Carlisle Mencap had a stall selling craft items and festive cards and decorations made by members of our Independence Studio at the Grace Little Centre. Our own stall, which was run by CEO Sheila Gregory and adult services manager Karen Routledge, made around £120 but the day itself raised, in total, a magnificent £1,000 for Carlisle Mencap so we are so grateful to the lady captain and her fellow golfers for their generous efforts.
Meanwhile on the same day at the Asda store at Kingstown, Carlisle, events & fundraising officer Phil Taylor, helped by executive committee members Anne Fletcher and Steven Bowditch, and our chairwoman Christine Bowditch, were running a tombola to tempt customers. The event made a £54 profit. Our thanks too to Asda for letting us hold a tombola in their store!
