Dore MU raised over £800 for MU Charities and branch funds at their Christmas Market. They said ” We don’t think much of the national MU raffle – we think our members like a simple one where they can see the (donated) prizes and winners can take their prize home. Raffle of our Christmas hampers and other prizes raised £140.60 which our committee agreed would then be recycled into tickets for the national raffle! If we win, we’ll keep the £2000 for branch funds!”
