Ukraine Sale Raises £585

The Coffee morning held on Saturday 8th in aid of the Ukraine raised £585.00 🙂

Sally Sarling reported the breakdown as follows:

  • Donations, including £25 from the Over 60’s Club: £274.00
  • Plants: £33.50 + ?*
  • Cakes: £75.50
  • Books & Puzzles: £31.00
  • Raffle: £171.00

Sally added “I just wanted to let you know how much money we made…. Not quite as good as the previous one last May but, knowing now we must be a little more careful with our cash, I am not surprised that we made £575. *However, it is possible that a little more might come our way from Val & Colin Lawrence who kindly put a table with plants for sale outside their cottage in Burstock.
I wanted to say a big thank you from Philip, Diana and myself for your support and invaluable help in making the event a success.
Thank you very much.
With best wishes and kind regards,
Sally Sarling.
