Skem Menaces Santa Dash for those in need
Hiya guys. As some will know the Skem Menaces always do their own Santa Dash and this year it is planned for December 16th. The idea, as usual, will be that each person taking part donates items fit for a XMAS HAMPER. Everything donated will then be made up into HAMPERS and sent on to the food bank at Evermoor Hub Digmoor Last year we made 20 HAMPERS and we are hoping to increase that this year.
If anyone out there is willing to donate items worthy of being in a HAMPER could you please let me know and I will be more than happy to pick up.
Cheers in advance Carl
