Our very own Richard Branson

Richard, supported in Blackburn has proven he has a talent for fundraising, recently making £88.95 on the door and raffle at the SHINE Group in Blackburn.

Richard has many other fundraising successes to his name, he often puts together fantastic prizes and hampers for raffles and tombolas. Richard goes to his local shop and buys lots of goodies including chocolates, biscuits and marshmallows. He then decorates a box and wraps up the contents to make alluring prizes.

Richard has also ran competitions such as guess the name of the bear (appropriately named Paddington!) and name the tiger.

Jolene Swain, East Lancashire Area Manager said: “Richard has a real talent, he could sell ice to the eskimos!”

And it doesn’t stop there, Richard is also planning holding a bingo session at the SHINE Group.
