Plans are now in place for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care to put on a terrific Pink Tombola event in The Spires, Barnet on Saturday 10th October 2020. Please drop by between 11am and 3pm to have some fun and show your support.
Our Pink Tombola stall has been a highlight of Cherry Lodge’s fundraising calendar for many years now. October is national Breast Cancer Awareness month and, in this respect, 2020 is no different from any other. Increasing people’s awareness of breast cancer and raising money to help fund Cherry Lodge Cancer Care’s much needed services are as important as ever!
Everything possible is being done to make this event a great success. Special attention is also being taken to keep people as safe as possible from Covid.
This year, we are not asking people to donate prizes for the stall – a good variety of items had been donated previously, and others have been purchased using money generously donated for this purpose. All items will have been quarantined and will be handled only by helpers wearing gloves.
On the day, our stall will be pitched near the High Street entrance to The Spires, in a good, well-ventilated spot. It will be protected by cones, and people will be asked to wear masks and not hover around. Hand sanitizer, gloves and masks will be provided. Tickets will be issued through holes in a board. Payment is to be by contactless card or by cash in a CL collection box ( no change given). Prizes will be handed out by volunteers wearing masks and gloves.
This will be Cherry Lodge Cancer Care’s first ‘live’ fundraising event for many months. Life is not back to normal – but Cherry Lodge’s Pink Tombola 2020 is definitely an encouraging step in the right direction. Do please pop by if you possibly can!
