A group of kind-hearted retailers from Carlton hit their charity fundraising target in one evening following a successful event held last week.

Carlton Hill retailers have launched a charity calendar which was on sale at a launch event held at Piginns Cafe Bar on Friday evening.

The group had a long-term objective of selling enough to raise £1,000 for good causes, but the event was so successful that they managed to hit the total in one night.

As well as the launch, an auction and raffle was held on the evening to boost funds.

 

Local dignitaries attended the event including Gedling MP Vernon Coaker and local councillor Jim Creamer.

Marie Jackson, who owns the Piginns Cafe on Carlton Hill said: “I would like to sincerely thank all participating in this event for the use of their efforts, free time and hard work.”

Calendars are still on sale via retailers on Carlton Hill and the funds raised will go to Age Concerns and other local causes.
