From time to time we come across a worthy charity that deserves support but that has been flying under our radar.
The Evergreen Care Trust is one of those. We decided to back the trust after it was named as ‘best social enterprise’ in the Stamford Mercury Business Awards – an award which were proud to sponsor.
So, we recently handed £250 to the Evergreen Care Trust to help with its Stamford Christmas Cracker appeal.
The Stamford Christmas Cracker campaign raises money to support the elderly community in Stamford, Bourne and the Deepings.
It is a giant raffle with more than £5,000 worth of prizes. A new winner is drawn every day in the 25 days running up to Christmas – and if you win one of the prizes your ticket goes back into the draw, so you could win again and again!
Tickets are on sale at Sowden Wallis Estate Agents in Star Lane, Stamford, or online from
We were really impressed with what we learned about the Evergreen Care Trust when we handed over the Stamford Mercury Business Award. We have been delighted to back the charity’s Christmas fundraising efforts.
