LOCAL businesses are being asked to dig deep this year and donate a prize to a Christmas raffle being organised by the Community Christmas Calne group.
Community Christmas Calne is led by Karen Lewis and her 15-year-old daughter, Charlie, and this year will be their 8th year of spreading Christmas joy to the elderly, vulnerable and struggling families in our community.
Each year, donations from the good people of Calne are turned into mini-hampers and delivered to those most in need around Calne to ensure that more vulnerable residents of our town don't feel alone.
To help fill as many hampers as possible, they will be running a Christmas Raffle this year and are looking for any local businesses big or small who are willing to donate a prize.
All proceeds will be used for food for the hampers and gifts for children who may otherwise not have much this Christmas.
If your business can donate a prize, please drop it off at Maria's Florist and Pet Shop.
A list of all businesses who have donated will be published in Calne News.
The raffle prizes will be on display in Maria's where you can also buy tickets for the raffle, alternatively you can contact Karen on 07482310698.
Meanwhile if you have any donations for the hampers the group are asking for : non-perishable food items, tolietries, shoe/boot boxes, Christmas crackers and wrapping paper, hats, gloves and socks or hampers made by you, you can contact Karen directly for collections or drop off at one of the locations below:
