The Barrow of Booze raffle is a time-honoured feature of Glee and is responsible for raising valuable funds for the Greenfingers charity to help their work in providing gardens and outdoor facilities at UK children’s hospices.
Glee visitors and exhibitors will almost certainly have come across the Greenfingers team as they wheel this year’s booze – in a trolley these days, rather than a barrow – around the show, selling tickets. The on-board raffle booty on the first day this year was Champagne, courtesy of Woodlodge Products, who have generously supported the raffle with booze, staff and equipment since it started.
For yesterday’s winner, Colin Higgs of Grantham-based toy and games suppliers Blasts (17T66), the result couldn’t have been more timely. His girlfriend Kathryn celebrates a ‘big birthday’ next month and the bubbly will come in handy for the party!
Who will win today? Buy a ticket….and it could be you.
