A phenomenal £4,000 is on its way to the Journal Children’s Fund: Christmas Cracker Appeal thanks to generosity of staff at Moy Park in Grantham.
And the money is still rolling in!
Friday night saw a charity auction take place at The Black Dog in Watergate, organised by a group of employees at the food processing plant.
There were some great lots which went for staggering prices, with everyone digging deep in their pockets to show support for the appeal.
Moy Park events co-ordinator Angela Aspiotis said: “It was a great night for a great cause and we are all very happy to be supporting the Grantham Journal’s Children’s Fund and donate all our money raised to the Christmas Cracker Appeal.
“We raise money throughout the year for various national charities but are always happy when we can get involved and do something for our local community, with our local community.
“On behalf of all here at Moy Park, I would like to say a very big thank you to all who supported us and helped us achieve such great results.”
General manager Nigel Laing was auctioneer for the night, kicking off the proceedings with a few light games, such as heads or tails.
And following the auction, pub staff held a race night, adding £574 to the pot.
