The small but very successful Sartori Store based in Kensington Road, Neyland is purely run by Paul Sartori Foundation volunteers, and they recently held a Ladies Day event in store. The Neyland charity shop has a number of high end fashion items available, which Volunteer Supervisor, Maggie John sources from top London stores and they kindly donate them for re-sale.

The volunteer team also generously donated money towards the event, which was used to purchase gifts and wine. Each guest who attended the Ladies Day on Wednesday 12th October, was given a glass of wine on arrival and a free gift with every purchase. There was a fantastic turnout for the glamourous event, and they raised a fantastic amount of money for the local Hospice at Home charity.

Maggie and the team of volunteers in the Neyland Sartori Store managed to raise a staggering £2040.80 by selling Christmas gifts, new autumn stock, shoes, handbags and jewellery. Maggie John said “I would like to thank all our wonderful customers for their continued support, and generosity to such a wonderful cause. Also a massive thanks to my small team of dedicated volunteers.”
