A message from SpArC Trustees



There are a number of ways in which we need help over the next few months:

1. Can you volunteer on Saturday March 30 for 2 or 3 hours from 10am? We need help with the Easter Egg Trail – marshalling the trail, serving tea and cakes, and selling sports gear.

2. Are you able to bake a cake for the same date? They were hugely appreciated at our last event.

3. Can you begin to sow/divide plants for the sale on Saturday April 20 (and for pop-up stalls afterwards)?

4. Does anyone still have unwanted presents for us to use a raffle prizes?

5. The collection of leftover Foreign Currency carries on until late April. We still welcome contributions in the bucket on reception.

6. Will you nominate SpArC as your chosen Benefact charity:

o Sport and Arts in the Community (SpArC) SW Shropshire

o Charity number 1170997

Don’t worry about the deadline; there are regular draws.

It’s slow work but, with the help of three volunteers, we are applying for a wide range of grants – both big and small. We are grateful to one of the first – Euro Quality Foundation in Craven Arms – for donating £1,000.
