We are pleased that we had such a great turn out and we are happy to record that we made £890.30 on the day. We still have a few collections which should put us at around £1000 when everything is collected. We had several orders for our Bird Houses and we will be filling these orders as soon as possible. Our soap sells are doing well also..we just produced our newest fragrance (Pink Lemonade) and this can be purchased from our Residents Shop here at Hazelhurst. The residents have also donated a bird house and some soap and decoupage bottles to Whitegate's for their raffle on Saturday. We hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and to everyone involved Thank you from the Residents and Staff at Hazelhurst.
