Christmas at Cleeve Wood Road Shops
Thank you to everyone who supported the event. Our grand total for the 2017 “Christmas at Cleeve Wood Road shops” event was £1850! Cheques for £775 were presented to Jessie May Children’s Hospice and Heart Animal Rescue in January 2018. The remaining £300 will be used to help improve the lighting surrounding the rank of shops, making it more safe and secure for everyone.
Regretfully our Christmas event will be taking a year off in 2018 but something will hopefully be planned in the future. The decision to take some time off is due to the amount of paperwork, licences, permits, insurances and general planning which has all greatly increased in recent years. The cost of putting on the event has also greatly increased, meaning it became not financially viable to put on the event and still generate enough money for charities. The event is organised by members of the committee at Cleeve Wood Road shops, all giving their time outside of business hours to plan and organise the event.
We are hopeful for an event to return to Cleeve Wood Road shops in the future. The event may take on another form or new ideas may be introduced to help raise money. The aim will still be to raise as much money as possible for local charitable causes.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the event.
