Ashtead Railway Station

As Ashtead Stations chosen charity for their book exchange donations, we are thrilled to have just received £85, collected over the past 3 months. A fantastic response especially as the Railway has been so quiet lately. Thank you to everyone supporting this scheme and to Southern Railway, who may look at replicating this at more of their stations.

Banstead Rotary’s Christmas Appeal

Banstead Rotary’s Christmas Appeal usually sees Santa and his elves travelling through the streets collecting donations but due to government restrictions it had to go online for the first time ever. We were very happy to once again be a part of this collection and we had a great team of volunteers that delivered over 500 promotional leaflets in the Nork area. The appeal (which is still open for donations) has raised an incredible £5,429.94 which is an amazing achievement in the current climate. This money will be shared between several local charities and we are very happy to receive our donation of £360 – Thank You. https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=BansteadRotaryChristmas&pageUrl=3

Christmas Card Success

We are delighted to have received a donation of £105 from Sarah Stanley through the sale of Flamingo Paperie Christmas cards and products. As a small charity, it is not really viable for us to produce our own charity Christmas cards but this really is the next best thing. A huge thank you to Sarah and to everyone that made a purchase. Sarah is very kindly going to continue to donate 10% of sales to Dyscover throughout 2021. Please contact her direct for details of the new everyday range: sjmstanley@aol.com
