Fundraising relay gets off the blocks

A SHOP in Daventry is hosting a charity fundraising drive next week.

Bonmarche, in Bowen Square, is holding a ‘Go Mad Go Green’ event starting on Monday in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

The store is organising a raffle as well as selling charity merchandise including puzzles and badges.

The store will also be a part of an A-Z electronic relay around 24 different shops.

The relay starts on Monday and once the store reaches its fundraising target the next in the chain begins its leg.

The aim of the relay is to raise more than £1 per mile – a target of £1,051.
