Last Friday's Tea and Coffee morning for Epilepsy Action raised £166, including Gift Aid. So a Big Thank You to all who supported this event in any way.
The Action for Children Quiz last Saturday evening raised £537.50. Special thanks to Vivienne and Steve, without whom the Quiz would not have been possible, and to Margaret, John, Lynn and Janice for coming in to help us out. Thanks also to those who bought tickets, made donations and gave raffle prizes. A really good evening!
The Soup Lunch last Sunday raised £165.65 for Boys' Brigade funds. They are going to use the money to subsidise their indoor camp in January! Thanks to those who made the delicious soups and to all who stayed for the lunch!
