It was their second fundraising event of the year in aid of their chosen charities of Five Villages First Responders and Alzheimers Society. The proceedings were opened at 2pm by Mr Colin Gibson who is himself a Responder

The weather was warm and sunny and the event was well attended. There were the usual bric-a-brac, book, cake and craft stalls, along with tombola as well as raffle prizes and a fruit hamper to be won. Refreshments of tasty homemade cakes and tea or coffee were available throughout the afternoon.

592.50 was raised from the event, which together with the money raised from the March sale makes a grand total of 1,017. Each charity was presented with a cheque for 508.50p at the Groups next meeting at the Recreation Room on Friday 31st August at 2pm.
Grateful thanks go to all those who attended and supported both events and helped in anyway.
