• Christmas busking at Waitrose •


On Saturday 16th December HCYO busked outside Waitrose in Waterlooville.  Musicians and parents braved bitterly cold conditions to play and collect donations.

We collected £190.32, which can now be gift aided under HMRC’s Gift Aid Small Donations Scheme increasing the donations by 25%.

Waitrose kept everyone supplied with hot drinks throughout the morning, so a big THANK YOU to them!  The cappuccinos tasted extra nice on Saturday and were a very welcome gesture from Waitrose!

Also, thank you to everyone who played and to the parents too for delivering the children and helping the Friends collect the donations.
