I could collect for an hour on the 21st at Wilton but I cannot do the 14th
atTesco. Paul will help.
We would prefer earlier if possible.

I hope you are all well.
Thank you to all who have helped with two recent collections. The Wilton
Garden centre collection raised £224.49. Last Friday’s collection at
Salisbury railway station bagged £263.80. Both had a £20 note in them as
well as tenners and fivers! Some very generous people out there. I think
these types of locations would always raise more than Matalan as that is a
low cost/budget outlet and rather isolated on its own so doesn’t pick up
For info, we have raised just over £5k so far this year, £2.5k of that was
a donation from Paul Emerson’s Lodge.
The Community Champion at Tesco has confirmed that we are booked in for a
collection at their Southampton Road store on Saturday 14 December. He
advises further that charity collections booked locally are subject to
change by head office however but if that happens he will let us know and
also rebook us. Katie has mentioned that she needs an early slot that day,
so will be first on scene with the buckets etc.
Please let us know if you are able to help at Tesco on the 14th December.
Katie is also thinking of holding another collection at Wilton garden
centre on either 21 or 22 December, as people will be buying their
Christmas trees and hopefully feeling extra generous. This is the last
weekend before Christmas so I imagine many of you will have commitments but
if you can spare an hour on either of those days please let us know - I
think we would go for whoever day the majority can give some time on.
Helen has created a WhatsApp group. If you wish to be added feel free to
send her your number but we will continue to mainly use email as this is
the most inclusive, most accessible medium and works well. Happy for you to
confirm availability/attendance In a quick WhatsApp message. Many of us
read emails on our phones though and can just as easily fire off a quick
That’s it for now, thanks again for all your help.
