It’s Your Choice was delighted to see so many local people turn out for its first ever Christmas Shopping Evening, held at Totton & Eling Cricket Club on Monday 23rd November.
Over 20 local businesses came forward requesting stalls at the event, displaying some of the best local independent businesses in the area, as well as well known names such as The Body Shop, Neal’s Yard, and Phoenix cards.
The event welcomed over 100 people and the IYC team enjoyed talking to so many new faces about the work they do.
As usual, the homemade cakes and tombola proved to be very popular, with some lucky winners going home with great prizes.
In total, just over £140 was raised, a modest sum, but it was a fantastic opportunity to get the charity name out there and discuss what we do with members of the local community.
Requests were made by stall holders and shoppers that IYC run another shopping event, so a date will be put in the diary in the New Year.
Everyone from It’s Your Choice would like to thank Totton & Eling Cricket Club for hosting the event, all of the stall holders for bringing their wonderful products, Tanya and Gina Hayter for baking and manning the cake stall, and everyone who came and shopped.
We look forward to seeing you at more events in 2017!
