Carving Pumpkins for Charity

In the run-up to Hallowe’en

We have 2 little competitions on the go:

  1. The Maxine Lester team shall be carving our pumpkins, adding the photos onto our Facebook page and asking all of our friends and clients to vote for their favourite! We shall be donating £1 for every vote we receive to our chosen charity: THE ROYAL BRITISH LEGION.  So please like and share, the more likes, the more money we give to charity!



2. You guys get to carve your own jack-o’-lanterns at home and send us a photo by 12 noon on 26th October.   We will put all the entries into a Hallowe’en Album and post these on 26th October after the entry deadline, and then you can get all of your friends and families to vote for your photo, and get them to vote for ours at the same time.  The carved pumpkin with the most votes on Facebook by mid-day on 31st October, will be our winner and will receive a voucher for £30.

Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal

A little information about our chosen charity:
The Royal British Legion provides lifelong support for the Armed Forces community – serving men and women, veterans, and their families.

Their symbol is the Poppy, and this short video explains why:



Remembrance Sunday falls on 11 November in 2018, and is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.  Remembrance is part of modern British life, culture and heritage. It becomes a particular feature of the public calendar each year when public, private, formal and informal Remembrance events take place throughout the UK. The Two Minute Silence, held each year at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marks the end of the First World War.

Thank you Royal British Legion
