Jennie Torpey: April 2018
The fifth and final Caribbean Evening on March 24th was a great success — everyone enjoyed the entertainment and delicious food. We've had some last minute donations given, so the final total raised for Action for Children is £1,012.93!
A very big thank you to all those who cooked, baked, organised, moved furniture, donated raffle prizes, and helped in any way, as well as those who came along! Special thanks to Viv and Steve Kemp, Jean Taylor and her family, Steve Marks and, of course, Beattie Francis, without whom our Caribbean Evenings would never have begun!
