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!
