Many thanks to all those who took part in our Halloween SpookaPalooza. There was some serious effort in the make up and fancy dress departments!! There was some apple bobbing antics at Droitwich, while there were some artistic efforts in the face painting arena. John Walters did a fantastic job although by the time he had finished there were quite a number of tigers on the loose!! At the time of going to print a fantastic ÂŁ60 was raised. Thank you all for your continued support.

Gimme 5 for Kids Bear Lamia Kassis, Sales Director UK & Europe Designate came up with a fantastic idea to raise funds for the Challenge 50 appeal. On sale now at £5 each are the Gimme 5 for Kids bears. All money raised goes to the Challenge 50 appeal. To begin with stocks are limited so if you would like one please see or contact Steve Minett at Bromsgrove. Lamia and co have done a wonderful job selling the bears so far. Never one to miss an opportunity Lamia attended sales conferences and sold the Gimme 5 bears to many of Kimal’s customers, distributors and suppliers. Some of whom can be seen in the photos on this page
