Faringdon Fundraising Branch
FARINGDON TOPS £4,100 FOR THE YEAR
Faringdon fundraisers made £507 in a day on December 10 with an in-store collection at Tesco and a stall at the nearby market square. Then, a final stall of the year a few days later in Witney Market Square raised another £143, taking the branch total for 2022 to £4,162.
"That's a great result for a small set-up like ours and one that's so far from the sea but it shows once more what goodwill and support there is from so many people, " says branch liaison Dave Thompson.
The Tesco in-store collection in Faringdon proved another big success after a similar presence earlier in the year.
Volunteers were on hand for nine hours from 9 am, catching shoppers' attention as they exited.
The sum raised was £439 while over in the market square Dave chipped in with £68 from sales and donations.
Chairman Denis Pope was at both venues while the others working the Tesco "shifts" were Dave North, Barry Moody and Danielle and Tim Mills.
Says Dave: "December's figures topped a grand year and are a huge positive for 2023."
