held a two day sale in High Street, Ross last week, to raise
much needed funds for the coming years' projects.
raising has been deemed necessary by the proposed stoppage of
grants to "in Bloom" organizations by Herefordshire Council.
An extra £600 minimum will have to be found each year to enable
RiB to continue with their projects around the town.
Vice Chairman who ran the Table Sale would like to thank everyone
who contributed to the event - whether it be by donating goods,
selling goods or (most important) buying the goods.
was raised over the two days, a good start to funds for the
future "This sale was organized on the spur of the moment when
Gill and Mervyn offered us the shop. I would like to offer them
the sincere thanks of the group for their generosity and help.
Unfortunately we were unable to do any advertising for the event,
but we are still delighted with the amount raised. Just think
how much we could have done with more time. With a bit of luck
we may be able to do something like this again next year with
a bit more time to spare. Perhaps readers would like to save
us their unwanted Christmas Gifts ready for another. All contributions
will be gratefully received".
different fund raising methods or offers of help are welcome
by the new fund raising officer, Jenny Holmes. Please contact
RiB by leaving your name and address or letters at the Heritage
Centre, Halcyon Daze or Lucas Motors.
