Volunteers Winning Window scoops £100 for St Oswald's

A Christmas shop window designed by two volunteers at St Oswald’s Whickham shop has been judged to be the best Christmas Shop Window display in the area by the Whickham Rotary Club winning St Oswald’s a £100 prize in time for Christmas.

Dawn Wills, Shop Manager at St Oswald’s Whickham Shop, said:

Each year the Whickham Rotary Club holds a Christmas Shop window competition and judge the local shop windows each December. Having entered many times before and even coming second last year, this year we were thrilled to learn that we triumphed! Not only that, but St Oswald’s also receives a £100 prize for our efforts which is a very kind and welcome Christmas present and will be very gratefully received by the team at St Oswald’s. Two of our volunteers, Mollie and Phyllis, designed the window and have done an absolutely wonderful job, I couldn’t be prouder of their amazing efforts especially considering how many good windows were in the running. We’ve received lots of fantastic feedback from our customers and many of the items in the window have now been sold. We’re really chuffed with the result, what a fab early Christmas present.

A huge well done to Dawn and her team at Whickham. To view our full range of Christmas windows and displays, head to our Facebook page and to find your nearest St Oswald’s shop, click here.
