Sir; May I thank everyone at The Grocer involved in raising the magnificent sum of £72,738 for the National Grocers Benevolent Fund through The Grocers' Great Trolley Race. The event was an outstanding success and it is obvious that The Grocer has carved out a not to be missed day for our industry. It was tremendously encouraging to see the level of interest and support for the teams taking part at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford last Sunday, and how much work they had put in, both in raising sponsorship and preparing for the race itself. The NGBF needs to raise £1m each year to help those people who have given most of their working lives to our industry and who now, in time of personal hardship, need our help. The money raised last weekend makes a significant contribution to our fundraising efforts. Again, many thanks to all concerned. And I look forward to an even bigger day next year.
