John Cross & Mark Molyneaux from Westfield and Kendal Caravans Group visited Rosemere just before Christmas to hand over their wonderful donation of £8090, raised at their 35th Anniversary event held at the Blackpool Village Hotel in November. Over 200 guests including staff, customers and suppliers attended this fantastic evening and were encouraged to make a donation and buy raffle tickets to help boost the total raised for charity. Their combined generosity came to a fantastic festive total, which was handed over to Area Fundraiser Amy Hilton and Corporate Fundraiser Cathy Skidmore. Thank you for your support!
