Michaelston 2015 Calendar

Calendar sales raised £200 so far

Sales of the 2015 Calendar based on the Village Hall's Get Me Out Of Here! show have so far raised £200 for MacMacmillan Nurses charity. There are still a few calendars available so if you haven't already got yours there is still time to help support this great charity.

The calendar is spiral bound and is designed so when opened out and hung on the wall shows a full page picture and a calendar for the month. Each month features one of the acts that appeared in the show. The calendar has a large area for each day which is useful for jotting down reminders.

It would make a great Birthday or Christmas present, or just a reminder of what a great night it was.

You can get yours for £5 each from Julie Taylor on 07974 474190. All proceeds from the sale of the calendar will be donated to MacMacmillan Nurses charity.
