Dates: Thursday 18th and Friday 19th December 2014 10am – 4pm
Event: Morrisons Collection Days
Location: Morrisons, Holderness Road, Hull
Amount raised: £763.90

Following a collection day at Morrisons on Holderness Road in Hull earlier in the year, Shirley King the Community Champion, managed to book the full foyer for us for 2 days. We had a tombola, hand- made items (made by Maria, Louise & Christine) - Pom Pom Snowmen, gift tags and tree decorations together with Rita’s Christmas Yule logs and candles and many other items that had been donated to the Charity, some of which had been made. We also took along NGVFA merchandise to sell. Maria had made a Loom band Nativity Set which attracted a lot of attention and finally sold to an elderly couple who were very happy with their purchase. We sold out of the Pom Pom Snowmen on the first day and a lot of the Frozen gift tags, as well as the tombola nearly being wiped out so after the event it was back to the office making more items for the following day and preparing more items for the tombola (a takeaway Chinese kept us going late into the night!!).

Day 2 again saw all the Pom Pom Snowmen sell together with more of the hand-made items and donated items. The tombola finished with about 10 items left by the end of the day. A big thank you to Shirley King and Morrisons for allowing us into their store and a big thank you again to Christine and John for volunteering and helping at this event.
