THERE’S still a chance to win your dream wedding - and help efforts to buy Doncaster a new medical scanner.
The Frenchgate Centre is offering a fantastic Win a Wedding prize of a £12,500 wedding including a reception, stag and hen parties, wedding rings, photography, bridal dress, flowers, cake and beauty treatments.
All you have to do is to pick up an entry form from the centre’s customer service desk and fill it in, returning it to the desk by 5pm on Wednesday, April 27.
Ten names will be picked out from the entries at random and the lucky couples will be invited to take to the stage in a Mr and Mrs style wedding quiz at the Frenchgate’s fantastic wedding fair on Saturday, April 30, between 10am and 4pm.
The Win a Wedding final will be held between noon and 2pm and as well as the dream wedding up for grabs there will also be runner-up prizes and goodie bags.
During the course of the day collectors will be out and about in the centre raising cash for the Scan for Life appeal, run by the Free Press to raise £600,000 to enable Doncaster Cancer Detection Trust to buy a new scanner for DRI.
The cash pot is nearing the £600,000 and we’re looking for more charitable people to give the appeal that final push.
Graeme Huston, South Yorkshire Newspapers’ editor in chief, said: “This as a great chance to win your dream day as well as helping us support a really deserving cause. We’re nearly there after a fantastic amount of fundraising by people from all over the borough. It would be great to buy the scanner in 2011 so please support this fantastic event to make sure we reach that target.”
Scan for Life donations can be paid directly into the Co-operative Bank in St Sepulchre Gate, using account number 50326679.People can also call in at DCDT’s shop in East Laith Gate or ring 01302 349177.
