World's Biggest Coffee Morning
Thank You

I would like to send a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who attended and so generously supported our 26th annual Coffee Morning recently. The event was part of Macmillan Cancer World's Biggest Coffee Morning and was a wonderful morning, with over 160 people attending.

The total raised so far for Macmillan is £1158.
A brilliant effort for our small village!!!

Special thanks to my team of helpers without whom the morning would not be possible, Karen Horne, Deidre Smith, Jean and Stephen Coe, Dorothy Dunnet, Jill Scott and Lorraine Brown. Not forgetting my brilliant husband Dave and Belinda Lee from Chocoholics.

With grateful thanks for all the donations of money, cakes and the interesting variety of 58 raffle prizes and to the W.I. for the free use of their hall for the morning.
Everyone was so very generous as always. Thank you!!!

There will be a final total in December after Chocoholics orders are completed.
