Charity Event in Aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation
A sincere ‘thank you’ to everyone who helped and supported the event on Wednesday the 3rd of April 2019, which was in aid of the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
I was privileged to have a few special friends, who has travelled from Essex, Guilford, London and Liverpool with me on the day. They had been busy knitting, sewing and baking in preparation for the event. They had a terrific time running their home-made craft stall - which raised over £200.
A special thank you must go to Christina Halstead, for her coordination of the event. Although there are too many people to single out, I am so grateful to our regular members who organised and drew the raffle, as well as those that ran the home produce, tombola and bottle stalls. The event could not have run so smoothly without the many people helping behind the scenes before, during and after the event, with roles such as ticket sales, afternoon tea and the bridge competition itself.
We have raised over £2000, which is a staggering amount, and it is down to the generosity and kindness of you all. I am humbled and overwhelmed by this fantastic sum, which will be donated to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
I can now ‘retire’ from running the catering at the club on a high!
Thank you once again,
