We had a successful weekend of raising funds for the HNC Juniors through bag packing at Sainsbury’s despite the weather and road conditions playing a significant part in preventing shoppers from leaving the comforts of their home and also making it difficult for players actually being able to get to Sainsbury’s. Despite these challenges, 21 Juniors volunteered their time throughout the weekend and used their natural charm with the shoppers to raise an incredible £637.81.
Special thanks to all parents who braved the weather and transported their children to and from Sainsbury’s. The fundraising weekend would not have been possible without your assistance. Also not forgetting special thanks to parent helpers, Coaches and Team Manager’s who also volunteered their time and supported the Juniors and assisted with manning the tills at various times throughout the weekend. As the number of shoppers was lower than expected (due to the weather and road conditions), Sainsbury’s have kindly allotted us another date in April/May 2013 – please watch out for e-mail updates regards this.
The total funds raised from the bag packing this weekend will contribute towards future summer events for the Juniors which will be organised by HNC.
Well done to all Juniors who supported this fundraiser.
