Request for Tombola Donations

 

Firstly, I hope you have had a lovely time over the Christmas period and take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year for 2018.

 

I also trust that you found the recent edition of our newsletter, Tell’sMore, interesting and informative.

 

There has been a very generous start to our activities in raising funds for the above detailed Charity. During the remainder of the academic year, a number of further events will take place. One in particular is the Tombola, which will take place from 27 February to 1 March, and in this respect, I ask you for donations please.

 

These can be handed in, unwrapped, at the 3Ls office when we are open (Tuesdays and Thursday 10.00 – 2.00, closed 12.30 – 1.00 for lunch) or at any time to the Centre for Lifelong Learning reception.

 

I thank you in anticipation of your continuing generosity to this very worthwhile cause.

 

Best Regards

 

 

John
