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!

I would like to thank everyone who took part today for their help in raising such a magnificent sum.  All of the fund raising activities we get involved in rely entirely on the good will and support of our staunch volunteers - and it is perfectly clear we could not do it without them.  Here I am talking about their activities before, during, and after the event which includes baking the goodies we sell, running the event, and clearing up and handing back afterwards.  There is also the other team to be remembered who keep the reserve open whilst the others are off-site and keep the home fires burning.

It is a team effort and we would not survive without you.  My VERY sincere thanks to you all.
