Ruddington Christmas Market, Colouring Competition and Raffle - December 2015

Published : 12th January 2016


The Thomas James team were thrilled to take part in Ruddington Christmas Market on December 5th 2015. With the office opening late, there were mince pies and mulled wine for all, specially designed games for the children, a raffle with prizes kindly donated by local businesses, and even advice on house selling and buying for those planning a move in 2016!

Local school children had also been encouraged to join in with a colouring competition. Their efforts, colouring in a template thoughtfully designed by Thomas James team, resulted in some spectacular masterpieces and choosing winners was no easy task! Nevertheless, winners were chosen, and rewarded with some excellent prizes, much to their delight as our photographs show!

The funds raised by the Thomas James Raffle amounted to a handsome sum, thanks to the generosity of the residents of Ruddington, Cotgrave and surrounding villages. This will be donated to the very worthy Ash Lea Community Special School.

Thomas James Director, Tom Reynolds, said that “The market was a super event which proved once again that Ruddington enjoys a fabulous community spirit! We are already looking forward to taking part in more local events in 2016.”
