Richmond Coffee Morning
Thursday, April 12th 2012
This morning was the first of two coffee mornings we hold each year at Richmond Town Hall to help raise funds for Foxglove. Volunteers arrived at 8am to help set up the various stalls and prepare the coffee.
Jean and John again ran the tombola for us and raised over £50. A cake stall creaking under the weight of home baked goods raised us over £55, and sales of bird seed and second hand books raised us nearly £40. Adding in the money raised from the coffee and raffle a total of £282 was raised.
This represents a fantastic effort from all those who helped us today; baking cakes, running stalls and encouraging people in from the market square. Thank you again to all those involved, your help is greatly appreciated!
