Your dad told me that you were in LEGOLand and you really enjoyed it.  I told my friends in LEGO about you and they wanted to say hi.

Sale4Sam 2008

Posted by stuff4sam on September 19, 2008

On Friday 19 September we held a Sale4Sam on the RNIB Peterborough site. Colleagues, relatives and friends kindly donated goods of all descriptions from soft cuddly toys to pictures to clocks! You should have seen it, four tables and looking every inch like a “car boot sale”! BUT we raised a total of £220.30.

A colleague of Bronwen’s also very kindly donated a collection of brand new Beanies, which we sold along with the ongoing book sale in the restaurant. With the proceeds of these two sales plus book sales, we have this week banked a further £300.  Big thanks to all who donated, attended and bought!

We anticipate holding our next sale of unwanted gifts towards the end of January/early February.
