Festive fundraising success for charity

Mansfield’s branch of Samaritans enjoyed a record fund-raising Christmas in Four Seasons Shopping Centre, and have thanked everyone who made their present wrapping service such a success.

A massive £3,743.99 was raised through donations from shoppers between 9th and 24th December – making it the most successful year for the Mansfield Samaritans since they began their gift-wrapping service 13 years ago.

Around 25 volunteers took part over the 16 day fundraiser.

A spokesman said: “We are extremely grateful to our volunteers and to the people of Mansfield for their generosity, and especially Four Seasons for making it possible.”
