Thank you so much to everyone who voted for us. We know at times like these there are a lot of people needing a helping hand and we cannot thank Country Market enough for giving us this money. We really are over the moon.”
Dean Marshall, Partner of Country Market, also added: “Once again, we received an incredible response to both the nominations and the voting for the X-citing Projects Campaign. A huge congratulations again to Home-Start WeyWater who are doing incredible work in supporting local families. I would like to say to all those that didn’t make it into the top three, that there is still a chance, and to other groups who have not yet nominated themselves to certainly try! So far we have managed to help two local organisations and we are looking forward to helping out many more as we are running the X-citing Projects until early next year. These are one of the many X-citing Events that we have going on at Country Market, so far we have also given away £1,000 to two unsuspecting shoppers and are launching our time capsule as well as our win a business competition in September.”
