SATURDAY 30TH APRIL & SUNDAY 1ST MAY

We are holding our 2nd can collection at IKEA, Braehead on the above dates, and are now looking for volunteers who can spare an hour or two of their time to help out.  IKEA has 2 main exits, and we aim to have 2 people at each exit the whole time.   As last time, we will also be handing out information leaflets.

Anyone able to help out at this event, please let Hazel know either at the April meeting (Monday 18th April) or by telephone on 07886 811407 or email here. At our previous IKEA can collection we raised over £500 for the group funds, and as this is a holiday weekend we hope to raise even more this time round.
