Charity Fundraiser

On Saturday the 15th of August, members of the Mid Maryon Road and Grasmere Close NW Scheme, along with guests and family, supported a charity fund raising event for the St Elizabeth Hospice. The event was very well supported by those present and by donations from neighbours who were unable to come. A number of local shops and restaurants also supported the event by donating wonderful raffle prizes.  All this meant that the staggering amount of £800 was raised, far more than ever hoped for!  This was a truly amazing total and thanks go to everyone for their generosity.

The helpers were marvellous; they bought & prepared the food. Through the evening, they supplied soft drinks and a wonderful spread. The event was enjoyed by all! The music was provided by Peter & Tanya who kindly gave their fee to be added to the charity fund which was gratefully accepted. Entertainment also included various singers, plus comedy skits which were both very good.

A huge thank you to Pat & Fred who volunteered their garden for the use of the event. It was an event that will not be forgetten for a long long time.

This was a great event not only being able to raise such a large amount for St. Elizabeth Hospice but also it enable neighbours to get together cementing their great community spirit.
