Festive fundraiser helps those in need

A FESTIVE fund-raiser is helping out those in need this Christmas.

Hillers Farm Shop in Alcester hosted a raffle with funds donated to Alcester Dementia Care and a food bank in Shipston.

The first prize winner received a hamper worth £75, donated by shop owner Sally Haines, with second and third prizes both collecting £50 vouchers for the meat and fish sections.

Some £500 was donated to Alcester Dementia Cafe, and just over £300 went to a Shipston food bank to help provide 100 Christmas dinners for those living alone.

Karl Mould, manager of Ragley Estate Meats, said: “I recently lost a loved member of my family to dementia, I would like to dedicate this fundraiser in her memory.”

Bunbury Cricket member Harry Dyke, who also works at the shop, also donated memorabilia from his collection for a silent auction.

The Evesham resident said: “It was a group effort really.

“I must thank my father for giving us the idea of raising vital funds for those that need it most.

“Alcester has an amazing, wonderful and valuable facility in its midst and I would urge anyone who would like to become a volunteer during the festive period to Contact Eileen Barnes and her magnificent team at Alcester Dementia Cafe.”
