320 guests enjoyed a weekend of fantastic weather and family fun activities: Friday 21st June consisted of a delicious three course meal and an evening of cabaret fun at Viva Blackpool, and Saturday 22nd June allowed retailers to take advantage of Blackpool’s famous Pleasure Beach, followed by a three course Gala Dinner with fabulous seven piece live band, The Nine Tones, a magician and colourful photo booth.
During Saturday night’s Gala Dinner, James Hall & Co. held a raffle in support of Marie Curie and Tom Heron, Marie Curie’s Senior Account Manager awarded the prizes that had been generously donated by suppliers.

Peter Dodding, Sales and Marketing Director at James Hall & Co. said: “SPAR retailers really get behind fundraising for Marie Curie and we are delighted to have raised £2175 through Saturday’s raffle.
“The annual SPAR Retailer Celebration Event is designed to bring our network of SPAR retailers together, to celebrate success and to allow retailers some downtime away from the demands of running a busy convenience store. Blackpool has been synonymous with fun filled action packed activities and that was exactly what we enjoyed over the weekend!”
This weekend marked the 3rd consecutive SPAR Retailer Celebration event, with previous venues including Manchester and Liverpool. During each meal, retailers enjoyed a selection of SPAR wines and SPAR Perlezza Prosecco (which won silver in the International Wine Challenge 2019).
