The impact of strokes have been felt by a number of the McClures team, both personally and through friends and family. So on Thursday 25th May some of our brilliant people held an event to raise money for the Stroke Association, a charity that is very close to our hearts.
Lib Dem leader and our local MP Tim Farron kindly came to draw the raffle, and the lucky winners took home delights from the forty donated prizes! Suppliers and customers pulled together to create a raffle fit for a king (do kings have raffles?) and we were overwhelmed by the good feeling from everyone.
All the team flashed their best shades of purple; gambled their hard earned cash on the raffle and gorged on cake from the bake sale, in the end over £1500 was raised! This included a £650 donation from us as we matched the raffle funds raised by the hard-working team. A great big thank you to everyone who donated prizes, gave money, bought tickets, baked cakes, ate cakes and wore purple!
