Charities Benefit from Old Girls' Christmas Market
Thursday, 24 November 2011
Ovacome and Teak Place were the two charities that benefited from this year's Old Girls' Christmas Market at Bolton School.
The festive evening, held at the School's Arts Centre, which included mulled wine and mince-pies for visitors, raised over £600 for charity. There were more stalls than ever at this year's event with toys and clothes for sale as well as jewellery, cosmetics, preserves, rich chocolates, cakes, confectionery, seasonal floral arrangements, cheeses and fine wines; visitors could even take advantage of a special subscription to Lancashire Magazine.
Whilst shoppers picked up some great bargains and novel Christmas presents and stocked up on food and beverage they also raised funds through the raffle and the entry fee. All monies made from the evening were split between Ovacome, a charity supporting women and their families who are affected by ovarian cancer and Teak Place, a charity working on behalf of the very poor in South Africa.
