Coffee morning at Bedale

Saturday, July 10th 2010

Ten volunteers turned up bright and early at Bedale this morning to help out at our fund-raising coffee morning. The day was bright and sunny and there were plenty of home-made cakes and scones to tempt people into parting with their money.

Here you can see Tony, Lilian and Lesley in fine form on the tea and cake table.
There was plenty to do - from drumming up customers from the carboot sale to manning the raffle stall, from clearing tables to washing up. Everyone had a smile and at the end of the morning Foxglove was richer by the amount of £205.40p.

Well done and Thank You to everyone who helped on the day and to those who donated items for the raffle or who baked us delicious food to sell. Thanks also to Elizabeth for manning the fort back at the reserve whilst we were away.

We couldn't have done it without you all!
