Richmond Coffee Morning

Friday, November 9th 2012

The final coffee morning of the year was held in Richmond Town Hall today.  Thirteen of our volunteers turned out to help run the event, with many more providing cakes to sell, bric-a-brac for the shop and prizes for the raffle and tombola.

Garth and Tony, along with Mike and Colin ran the kitchen making sure everyone enjoyed a hot cuppa.

Jean and John spent the morning running the tombola stall.

The morning was well attended, with around 80 people showing up.  The money raised has now been counted, with the total standing at over £250!

This represents a fantastic effort from all of those involved this morning.  Thank you, as always, for giving your time to help the reserve in so many ways.

Can I please thank all those who turned out today and the 40+ who helped last Saturday at the ‘workie day’.  It has been said many times before and no doubt will be in the future, but Foxglove could never be the place it is without such a dedicated, helpful team of volunteers who give so freely and generously of their time.  Your efforts do not go unnoticed and they are hugely appreciated.  Thank you.
