Marie Curie to be exact.
When you have a shop, you get asked to do a lot in the name of charity. I say no to most of them, but then a get 2 or 3 requests a week.
I said yes to these ladies immediately, because they asked nicely. They are customers, our name, contact details and images went out on the invitation, a representative from the charity was there, and they had cardboard cut out nurses. I hope they raise stacks of cash.
I say no to people who ask by saying "I've never been in this shop before" "In this economic climate the chain shops won't help us, so we have been forced to come to you" or those who are nothing more than bullies, or those events where the charity element is merely to justify a ticket price.
or if you ask me when you are eating a sandwich, or if you ask me the day before the event.
I can't say no to the animal charities, those women know my weakness.
I think i have adopted 32 donkeys, 6 dolphins, and of course The Hound....
