DAVID Baker Funeral Directors of Bidford on Avon are once again selling Christmas cards and gifts on behalf of Shakespeare Hospice from their High Street.

Gabby Sanchez from the funeral home said “We have been helping the hospice for several years now. Unfortunately this year there will be no Christmas Fayre at Bidford where we would have sold much of the stock.

“It is more important than ever for people in the area to call in to our office and buy some cards and gifts.

“Even if you already have enough cards, buy some for next year. It really is a deserving cause,” she added.

AN EVESHAM teenager was given the prestigious Lions Gold Award for Community Service after clocking up over 150 hours of voluntary service within twelve months.

Rebekah Randles, 17, was handed the award after taking part in a variety of activities such as helping at the Operation Christmas Child warehouse, Evesham College Armed Forces Day, assisting as a volunteer at Lourdes and Evesham Library, as well as time given in helping Girl Guiding Evesham.

Rebekah was also presented with the Girlguiding Young Leader Qualification which she gained by organising, assisting and planning exciting activities for the members of Hampton Rainbows.

Amy Cook, a Girlguiding District Commissioner added “I am very proud how Rebekah has worked on both awards and that nothing has been too much trouble to help and assist with”.
