The Clwyd Clippers (Mold Barbershop Harmony Club) put on 2 charity shows at Theatr Clwyd, Mold, North Wales, to celebrate their 25th anniversary on 14th July. The profits from them were divided between The Contact Club of Mold and The Eye Fund. It was a very successful day and a complete sell–out. There was a variety of music all day from 2:00pm until 10:30pm.
The Eye Fund stall did very well with lots of sales, and the highlight was a sealed bid auction for a signed copy of Paul McCartney’s DVD “Good evening New York City” which raised £153. The successful bidder was a joint venture between the Sherratt brothers, Rod, Graham and Barry.
Thanks to the Sherratt brothers and all who organised the event and made it a very successful day.

SPECSAVERS Allerton, Liverpool, organised three charity days in May to fundraise for The Eye Fund.
Siobhan, Alison, Paula and the rest of the team worked really hard calling at local businesses for donations and holding a raffle and other events, such as ‘Guess how many pairs of specs in box’ and ‘Name the teddy’. Between them they raised a brilliant £228.
The trustees of The Eye Fund send their grateful thanks.
There is to be an auction on the night. Items to include a tour for 4 round Anfield, a tour for 2 round Goodison Park, 2 Sony Erricson Vivaz mobile phones plus Blue Tooth, a signed Jason Mansford DVD, and other special items.
I think the people in Birkenhead must be getting fed up with us by now. (Only kidding) They have been very generous. This was anew craft fair that hadn’t been there before and we were offered a free table as we are a charity. We couldn’t miss this opportunity to get to know other stall-holders and raise even more for the charity. It was over the 2 days but only from 11.00am to 3.00pm. We finished the weekend taking £225.00.
