And, if you are literally looking to ‘bag’ a bargain, there will also be a very special Tombola where you can win new, and nearly new, designer handbags and belts, with brands such as Dior, YSL, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Celine and Ferragamo (to name just a few!). All the bags are guaranteed 100% genuine, and when new, cost between £300 and over £1,000….!!
Anyone wishing to donate raffle prizes, new or very nearly new items to the Spring Sale, should please call Anne Maddison on 618 373 528 or email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. This is very much not a Jumble or Car Boot Sale, and therefore only items in pristine condition can be accepted. In addition, if any LACE Ladies attending the Spring Sale could bring a home-made cake with them on the day for the Cake Stall, this would be greatly appreciated.
Food Parcel Urgent Appeal
This year, proceeds from the Spring Sale are to go towards the Red Cross food parcels, currently being given to nearly 500 needy families in the Mahón area alone. With unemployment at an all time high, and very little financial assistance from the state, families who are existing below the poverty line are destitute and have to rely on a food parcel from the Red Cross. Members of the Red Cross team, who compile and deliver these food parcels, will be on hand at the Spring Sale, to answer any questions you may have about the scheme.
The organisers would also like to appeal to everyone who is attending the Spring Sale to please bring one item of food for these vital Food Packs. This needs to be dried or long life food, such as rice, pasta, UHT milk, oil, anything tinned etc. There is also a very urgent need for nappies, toiletries and powdered baby milk.
Free admission and parking, so do come along and join in all the fun and support a very worthwhile cause.
