Fun day aids two charities

A FAMILY fun day is taking place in Buxton this weekend as part of an annual fund-raising drive by a local store.

The event, on Sunday, will run from 10am to 3pm in the Iceland car park, and will include a raffle, children’s tombola, cake stall, children’s games and bouncy castle.

It will raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK and Walking with the Wounded - Iceland’s two chosen charities for 2012 - and is the culmination of two weeks of fund-raising by staff at the Spring Gardens store. Other activities which have taken place during the fund-raising drive have included a car boot sale and various sponsored events.

Any donations can be dropped into the Buxton store. Collection can also be arranged, call 01298 72582 for more details.
