St. Saviour's Church Guernsey, Revel Raffle

We were more than happy to support St Saviour’s Church in Guernsey by allowing them to sell Revel Raffle tickets outside Morrisons Daily St Peter. The Revel event was an enormous success. The raffle alone made £7,000, and the total raised for the whole day was just over £11,000. An amazing total and a great family day out!

Les Landes Primary School Summer Fayre

On Friday 8th July, Les Landes School held their annual Summer Fayre in order to raise funds for the school. Morrisons Daily Benest were more than happy to donate five boxes of crisps and some sweets to their tuck shop stall.

Kayleigh's 65km for Cystic Fibrosis Trust Jersey

Kayleigh Blandin is raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust by completing a 65km Ultra Marathon around Jersey on Thursday 29th September. To help with her efforts to raise money for this worthwhile charity, we donated two Morrisons toys for her raffle which was drawn on the 14th of July. Best of luck with your marathon in September Kayleigh!

Together We Make a Difference The Big Stripes Yoga Strench and Walk

On Saturday 16th July, Together We Make a Difference held the Big Stripes Yoga Stretch and Walk event. This included a 30 min yoga stretch followed by either a walk or run from St Aubin to La Fregate and back, followed by snacks and Bangladeshi music. We are more than happy to donate two Morrisons toys to their raffle to help raise funds for their projects in Bangladesh. This includes fundraising for school toilets (boys, girls, disabled) and providing clean, safe water for all primary-aged students.

On Thursday 21st July, The Good Companions Club held their big fun quiz night, hosted by Colin Adams. Morrisons Daily Benest were delighted to help support the event by donating two cases of wine as prizes.
