Richmond Coffee Morning

Thursday, August 22nd 2013

Today was the second of our coffee mornings this year at Richmond Town Hall.  Several volunteers turned out to help us fundraise at this busy event.

Glennis and Joan spent time welcoming people and taking payment.

Coffee and Tea were poured out and delivered to tables by Tony and Howard.

Behind the scenes Colin, Sue and Jacky managed to keep up with the washing up as the crowds came in.

Many people had spent time earlier in the week baking for Rachel's cake stall, or had brought items in for the tombola all of which helped us to raise a fantastic £161.70!  Thank you everyone who has spent time baking, making coffee, washing up, greeting people, and running the stalls; and of course a big thank you to Elizabeth who looked after the reserve while we were enjoying a coffee out this morning!
