20 Pences Around The Bandstand raises £2,400!
11th August 2018
Despite a grey and somewhat drizzly day the event raised £2,400. The Mayor Mike Bonfield laid the first 20p followed by the deputy Gail Green and the first circuit was completed by young Daisy putting her collection of coins in place. That was just the start and 5 circuits were completed with a 6th started raising a total of £1200. Thank you to everyone who has been collecting for the event.
On the day we were entertained by Karen Grant until the weather stopped the use of equipment. Thanks Karen. Your support is much appreciated. We also had another table top sale, there were donation buckets and the results of the raffle was announced late in the afternoon. Thank you to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle and items for the table top sale.
This was another event that demonstrated the support from the people of Swanage to get our bandstand back.
The total from the day was £2400. Fantastic.
