Sweet fundraiser hard to re­sist

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

A town-cen­tre shop kept Maid­stone’s High Street sweet as cakes, choco­lates and treats were carted around to raise money.

Leanna Apps, pic­tured, from McColl’s in Ju­bilee Square, car­ried around a char­ity do­na­tion tin to col­lect change from shop­pers to raise cash for car­diac ar­rest char­ity CRY (Car­diac Risk in the Young). She also did a spon­sored walk and or­gan­ised a raf­fle.

Leanna said: “The CEO of the char­ity lost their son to a car­diac ar­rest at 21 and set up this foun­da­tion. A lot of peo­ple have had heart at­tacks or think of their loved ones and do­nate.”

Raf­fle win­ners took home huge boxes of choco­lates and shop­ping vouch­ers to spend in Maid­stone.
