£1200 has been raised recently for Cancer Research and Action for Children. So from Maureen Tucker's daughter Erica Morton, we have, "A Big Thank You to all the kind people who sponsored me for Race for Life on 15 May at Waddesdon. The amount raised was £595.50 with £112.00 that can be claimed back regarding Gift Aid, making a total of £707.50 for Cancer Research UK." Meanwhile, the Action for Children stall in Market Square on Saturday July 9th raised £181.93. Many thanks to all who baked, donated and helped in any way. The retiring collection on the Sunday totalled £312.89. Thank you for your generosity.
