Businesses in and around Abingdon have been very generous with gifts for residents attending the Mayor of Abingdon’s over-70s Christmas Party on 20 December.
The venue and refreshments have been provided for free by the Hilton Garden Inn at Marcham Road.
John Kilday from the Coventry Building Society has been a tremendous help in gathering gifts for the raffle from local businesses including:
- Two pizzas from the Crown and Thistle Pub on Bridge Street
- Two tote bags from R&R cafe in the Market Place
- Three meals from Ask Pizza on The Square
- A bottle of prosecco and a box of mince pies from Waitrose
- Biscuits and wine provided by the Spar at Didcot Parkway station
In addition to arranging these gifts, the Coventry has also donated two tins of biscuits and a chocolate orange.
Abingdon Town Council would like to thank everyone who has contributed so generously, in particular Mr Kilday, who has given so much of his time to support this event.
