CONGRATULATIONS!
Sales of your donated books, CDs, DVDs etc have raised over £1,000!!!
This has been a wonderful community effort in support of a great local cause
THANK YOU!!!
The latest figure stands at £1,012.52
I still have books donated by Fiona to process and Patsy has a load to be delivered
My initial goal was £1k so I shall be bringing these sales to an end
If you've been thinking to de-clutter, your time is up!
THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE FOR A CLEAR-OUT!
Please be in touch asap to arrange collection/delivery.
Very many thanks
Best wishes
