BAG PACK Saturday 15 December

Volunteers are needed for our Bag Pack in Shoprite, Derby Road, Peel on Saturday 15 December.
As well as raising funds to keep our fantastic yacht  Pride of Mann III sailing, bag packs also help to raise awareness of the charity. 
Please contact Adrienne on 466514 if you could possibly spare an hour or two to help with bag packing or just talking to customers and give information about your charity.
Many thanks to Shoprite for allowing us to use their store.
