No Bah Humbug at Iceland

Sorelle and Russell - Honorary Spangles!

Shoppers got in the mood for Christmas at Iceland, San Javier last weekend when Manager, Russell Clements, invited Spangles along to sing to his customers. It was all in a good cause too, because Iceland has already started their fundraising for MABS Murcia/Mar Menor by offering bag packing for a small donation and selling raffle tickets for a big prize draw. Martin Lawrence, who is responsible for customer service, had already sold over 1500€ worth of tickets and there were still a few days to go before Christmas Eve. “Martin is very good at customer relations and always raises a lot of money for our chosen charity” remarked Russell. “We’re very hopeful of exceeding our target of 2000€ on our first fund raising effort for MABS and we’re looking forward to lots more events in 2011”.

Spangles joined in the spirit with tinsel and Christmas songs, as well as helping to pack bags in between the singing. “MABS is our nominated charity for 2010, so we’re delighted to be involved in the fund raiser at Iceland.” said Anthea Prentice, co-Chorus Manager. “We have been treated like VIPs by all the Iceland staff, with mince pies and Bucks Fizz, and we’ve had some fun with the customers too, so we hope that we can do it all again next year!”
