HENNIGHAN’S TOP SHOP CELEBRATING 40TH ANNIVERSARY
On the 21st June 1982 Mr Hennighan Snr opened Hennighan’s Top Shop in Machynlleth.  40 years later the Hennighans are preparing to celebrate the award winning chip shop’s Ruby Anniversary.
Close to the Hennighan hearts is the new Chemotherapy Unit being planned for Bronglais Hospital and the family wish to raise a substantial amount towards this worthwhile cause. As far as we are aware the Unit funds are short by around £100k and so every bit of fundraising counts enormously. From a fundraising effort over Christmas, we found that a lot of our town folk also support the building of a new Chemotherapy Unit at Bronglais.

To celebrate Hennighans are planning several events throughout the year, starting with everyone’s favourite – a scratch card scheme.  The plan is to have 5000 cards to sell at £2.00 each. After costs it is estimated that this scheme will raise approximately £8750 towards the Chemotherapy Unit.

We are approaching all suppliers, local shops, and local attractions to ask if they would be able to donate a prize for this little fundraiser. Whether this is a prize related to their business or a donation of a product, voucher etc.  Small prizes will include various items off the Hennighan’s menu, and one main prize of Fish n Chips once a week for a year. Any sort of prize would be very welcomed, and your sponsorship of this venture would be made very clear and public.

Local attractions could offer experience days out, a meal, or a gift from your gift shop; and local businesses could perhaps also sponsor experience days out, a weekend away somewhere beautiful or products that they sell.
We hope to launch the fundraiser at the beginning of June which happens to be the Jubilee weekend so a double whammy there – and on the 25th June (closest weekend day to our actual opening day) we will provide Fish n Chips for £1.00 for the day!

Please have a discussion with your decision makers and see if you can join our celebrations by offering a prize for our Ruby Anniversary Scratch card game.  Do contact us if you would like to discuss options.

To ensure timely printing and preparing of the cards we would need prize pledges by the 10th April.  Its easy to email us at hennighanstopshop@gmail.com Or phone Jemma on 07977271899 or welcome to message her through social media.
Thank you all for your support over the years and we look forward to hearing from you.
