Ap­peal for fair prizes

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Un­wanted items rang­ing from cham­pagne to puzzles are needed to raise money for the Pil­grims Hos­pices an­nual Gift It Again ap­peal. Last year, gen­er­ous res­i­dents do­nated hun­dreds of gifts, which raised an im­pres­sive £9,100. Suit­able items in­clude choco­lates, toi­letries, toys, can­dles and drink. The Pil­grims’ Ros Sawyers said: “We are in­vited to many fairs, sales and other events to fundraise. Our ex­pe­ri­ence is that ev­ery one likes a chance to win some­thing so th­ese gifts are used as the prizes for very large tombo­las, raf­fles and auc­tions.” To sup­port the cam­paign, drop any un­used items at the hospice in Hythe Road, the County Square shop­ping cen­tre in Ash­ford town cen­tre or B&Q in Nor­man Road, South Ash­ford.
