First 100 marks at Beach Hut Advent Calender

Visitors to the Beyond Beach Hut Advent Calender left over 100 fingerprints on the tree last night at beach hut 44 … the first ever 100 marks collected!  We also raised £65 in one hour for Winston’s Wish, the leading Child bereavement charity that will benefit from the launch event on Boxing Day.  We had such a magical evening, leaving our marks and chatting over mulled wine and mince pies. 

The tree was donated by The Flowerstand on Palmeira Square, and the lights, decorations by Lulu & Hitch, and lights by Brydens DIY and Berts homestores.  Thank you for your kindness and helping to create the evening.

Thank you to all those that joined us, for your support and donations, and to Martin at Beyond … who was one of the first to ever leave his mark!
