GENEROSITY was about in plentiful amounts in Creswell just before Christmas.
Limestone House, a charitable organisation and hub of village life on Elmton Road, organised a raffle to raise funds for its projects.
And they were overcome with kind offers of help and donations from the community.
Creswell Co-op manager Steve Bodle went on a supermarket sweep around his store and donated a huge hamper of goods.
And other offerings included a Christmas tree from Dukeries Garden Centre, a meal at Limehouse Cafe, Welbeck, and goodies from Welbeck Farm Shop.
“We are just overwhelmed by the kindness that has been shown towards our appeal for raffle donations,” said a spokesman from Limestone House. “It will really help us raise the funds to carry on our work.”
Limestone House provides multimedia computer suites, music recording studios and education facilities for the community. It also has a heritage centre, a charity shop, second hand book shop, advisory services, rooms to let and a coffee shop.
