Rovers club shop in Sunday opening

Doncaster Rovers are set to open their club shop on Sundays in the run-up to Christmas.

The club says the shop will be opening on a trial basis after requests from supporters.

A spokesman said: “The club are delighted with this news as we’re sure fans will also be.

“From this Sunday, November 4, the club shop will open on Sundays between 9am and 1pm and will remain open every Sunday up until December 23.”

Spooky fundraiser

A HALLOWEEN-themed charity event has raised almost £100 for the Coldstream Guards.

The Scary Mary party for children was held at the Wheatley Club in Morley Road and raised £96 for the military group.

The three-hour party featured a disco, face painting and themed foods and games for kids and those who are just young at heart.

Organisers said the event was a huge success, with dozens of children coming to take part in the spooky fundraiser.

Women’s group

A MEETING is being held in a bid to set up a new branch of the Women’s Institute.

Organisers are hoping to set up a branch of the WI in Warmsworth after being inundated with residents’ requests.

A successful meeting was held at the community centre, and now plans are going a step further with a second meeting taking place on Thursday at Warmsworth Community Centre in Low Road West at 7pm.

Autumn fair

AN AUTUMN fair today will raise money for Burghwallis church.

The fair will be held at the Burghwallis pub in Scorcher Hills Lane between 1pm and 3pm.

There will be activities and stalls including cakes, books, jewellery, toys, puzzles and white elephant.

There will also be a raffle. Admission is free.

Clothing sale

A CHARITY is running a nearly new sale of baby clothes, toys and equipment today.

The National Childbirth Trust is hosting the event at The Doncaster Dome leisure centre, running from 10am to noon.

Lizzie Ette, NCT Doncaster volunteer, said: “NCT nearly new sales are a simple idea, with so many benefits.

“Some parents sell items they no longer need, others hunt for bargains.”
