Team Cappuccino Strikes Again!

Thursday, November 13th 2014

Seventeen volunteers (collectively known as Team Cappuccino) arrived bright and early at Richmond Town Hall to set up for our fundraising Coffee Morning.

There are so many people to thank, from those that donated prizes for the raffle and tombola as well as items for the bric-a-brac stall, the bakers who made such delicious cakes, those who ran the stalls, made the coffee, washed up and those who organised the event. The whole morning was such a success and our volunteers created such a lovely and welcoming atmosphere for all those who dropped in for their coffee.

The totals were once again record breaking(!) with £183.50 taken on the Door and Raffle. Cake sales raised us £89.60 and Bric-a-brac made us £35.25. The Tombola was as popular as every bringing in £45.00 and finally sales of items from the Foxglove Shop made £75.80. The grand total, minus expenses, came to £401.60, this is over £50 more than at the last coffee morning in June!

Well done everyone, and thank you all again!

What we didn’t tell you all is that we were running two competitions at the same time for the youngest and most glamorous looking cappuccino team members.  By the tiniest of margins Glennis won one of the prizes and Colin the other - but I refuse to say which was which.  It was a close call and may require a play off.

The results of today are exceptional and I can only echo Adam’s comments.  I talked to several people in the room who have known the reserve for many years.  The common denominator throughout was the remarkable contribution made by dedicated volunteers who think nothing of giving of their time and skills to support an organisation like ours.  Where would we be without you?

It really was an outstanding demonstration of what can be achieved, and I do sincerely thank all those who helped on the day - and those who contributed in other ways.  We are enormously lucky to have your enthusiasm and Foxglove would be a shadow without you.  I was very proud to hear Ruth extolling your virtues to our VIP visitor, and I know he was very impressed also. 

A special thank you to Tony and Lilian - and to you all for a fantastic outcome.  Very well done!!
