Winchester Christmas Lights Switch On

Winchester BID nominated the Basics Bank as their charity for the switching-on of the Christmas Lights in Winchester City Centre on November 15th. This meant that our Operations Manager, Jeremy Carter, was interviewed on the stage in front of the Guildhall in front of a large crowd, about the service we provide. We also had a stall in the High Street and were able to make a street collection which raised £375. Mary Alveyn, Chair of Friends of Winchester Basics Bank, organised and decorated our stall and the street collection.
