For the second year running we, at Taymer have opened a ‘Christmas Shop’ so that residents, staff, family and friends could purchase reasonably priced presents for Christmas. Heather (Activities Organiser) was the sales person and our resident, Kathleen, helped with the finance as she used to be an accountant before she retired.
We sold £1,095.00 of stock supplied by the local chemist. Items ranging from bags, hot water bottles, perfume, Aftershave, toys, socks, watches, hankies, candles etc. The chemist gave us 10 % per cent commission which has gone into our resident’s fund.
