THE MAYORS FLOWERSHOW SUNDAY CHARITY LUNCH 14th AUGUST 2011 in THE MEMBERS MAQUEE, THE QUARRY SHREWSBURY.
Without the kindness shown by these businesses my charity lunch could not really happen.
The first Thank You goes to the Shropshire Horticultural Society, for lending us the use of the Members Maquee before it is taken down. The Marquee is a fantastic structure wirh a lovely view over the Quarry. What better setting could you ask for to have your Sunday lunch.
I have listed below the Businesses that have supplied us with some really fantastic prizes for our raffle. Many of the prizes up for grabs would mean if you won one, you would of had your £20 ticket plus your raffle ticket for nothing, if you went into the shop and bought that prize, if not for nothing your lunch would of cost less than £10 due to the number and quality of donations given to us. For this we are eternally grateful.
We did not want to put any order to the names of those that donated such quality prizes, so we numbered every business and drew the numbers out and put the names in that order. We have not put down what the donation was or where the address of the business is as we would like people to find out where they are and look around, I know many out there will already know where most are, but not all will.

Our whole aim apart from making money for our charity is to introduce more people to our specialist shops and our independent traders, that Shrewsbury is so proud of, as well as people walking away from the lunch with a smile on their faces and with a raffle prize in their hand.
I may even have one or two names to add to the above by tomorrow night.
I know everyone who comes to the lunch will enjoy the food and company, we want everyone to be happy have a good time and have fun.
I will put the name of our caterer in tomorrow, as I do not want my secretary overloaded with bookings on Monday, when you find out who it is as you will all want to come. There are ticket available if you want to get in touch with Carol the Mayors secretary she is on telephone number 01743 257655 after 9am and before 5pm.
