Isle of Wight SPAR shops operator, Hunnyhill Shops Group, has been fundraising once more for a neighborhood good trigger on the island.
Final yr, the corporate raised greater than £4,500 for the Donkey Sanctuary in Wroxall because of its position as main sponsor of a music competition on the Isle of Wight.
Now, the corporate has begun a fundraising programme for the Ventnor Paddling Pool Fund after funding was withdrawn by the Isle of Wight Council, duty for which has now been taken over by the city council.
The programme began with a Pancake Day occasion at its Victoria Avenue, Ventnor retailer, involving a race and pancake tossing with the prospect for patrons to win SPAR vouchers. All income will go in the direction of the paddling pool fund.
The Ventnor retailer is one in every of 13 operated by the corporate all through the island. Hunnyhill opened its first retailer on the Isle of Wight in 2000 and has been instrumental in offering a significant increase to the SPAR model there ever since.
It has different shops in East Cowes, Lake, Newport, Ryde, Sandown, Wootton, and Wroxall and employs greater than 120 folks all through the island.
