Christmas Toy Appeal Success!

The Gazette and Herald teamed up this year with The Salvation Army to promote the Christmas Toy Appeal - a scheme which is run annually and aims to help families who are struggling to pay for their children’s gifts at Christmas time.  Several local companies are taking part in the scheme by being a collection point for people to drop off unwrapped toys and games. Close to Christmas, the toys and games are then distributed  by The Salvation Army volunteers to local homes allowing families to wrap up these gifts with their chosen wrapping paper so that their children having something to  open on Christmas day!

Thank you!

Awdry Bailey and Douglas amongst other local firms was proud to be a collection point and would like to thank everyone who kindly donated toys and games to the firms 4 offices.
These gifts will help to bring happiness to many families on Christmas day.

A Game Of Two Halves And A Full House!

Michael Portillo sponsored by Awdry Bailey & Douglas

The weather was wet, windy and cold but this didn’t stop a “full house” in the Devizes Corn Exchange last night, Monday 30 November...

Organised by Devizes Festival Committee, Awdry Bailey & Douglas were very proud to sponsor British Journalist, broadcaster and former Member of Parliament, Deputy Conservative Party Leader and Cabinet Minister Michael Portillo who gave a fascinating and hilariously funny talk about his life in the government, his family and his great train journeys. This was an immensely enjoyable evening - certainly enjoyed by all.
