As part of our Christmas celebrations we had the choir from St Mary's on the Mount come to our store to sing Christmas Carols. The choir is an award winning choir and has the opportunity to record a cd but needed sponsorship to pay for the cd's and sleeve design. The choir sang for an hour and raised £170 towards their project. The event was enjoyed greatly by both customers and colleagues alike.
In December we planted a tree on behalf of Louise Harper and her family who sadly lost Louise's husband earlier this year. We planted a Christmas Pippin as Louise's husband had a Christmas birthday. The tree was planted in the community orchard where Louise's family and friends can come and remember Louise's husband whenever they want to.
The annual Christmas Carol service was again held in the bandstand in Walsall Arboretum. The tree was donated by the architects and builders of the new visitors centre and the decorations and mince pies were donated by Asda St Matthews. this is a very popular event with attendances rising every year.
As part of St Matthews Christmas celebrations, we welcomed in store a newly forming brass band. The band has been put together to become The brass band for Walsall. The band played carols for over 2 hours and was very popular with both customers and colleagues alike.
And after a very long, busy day Pudsey returned to store and was as big a hit with our colleagues as he had been with everyone else he'd seen today.
Pudsey spent half a day not only collecting money but cheering up the patients in Walsall Manor Hospital. The adults loved him but more importantly he bought a great deal of delight to the children on the Children's Ward.
Pudsey was a big hit when we took him through Walsall Town Centre where he was stopped every few yards by adults and children alike.
Our very own Pudsey pizza's created a lot of interest with our customers and colleagues and helped high light the Children In Need event as well as selling well.
