Why not help celebrate the twelve days of Christmas and give a deserving local charity a helping hand this year?
Norton-based autism charity Daisy Chain is looking for local businesses, community groups, circles of friends, offices, supermarkets and anybody else willing to get into the Christmas spirit for just one fundraising day.
The idea is that between December 1st and December 12th people pick one day in which to stage a fundraising event on behalf of the charity.
“This can be whatever you like from a dress down day, a Christmas jumper day, cake sale, Christmas raffle – pretty much anything at all,” said Tracey Wright, events manager.
“Darlington Building Society, Mercedes-Benz of Teesside in Stockton and the Sweet William florist in Eaglescliffe have all signed up and we would welcome plenty more,” she added.
Very popular last year, and available again, are the ‘Antlers for Autism’. At just £2.00 these are great for raising money and awareness about autism.
