This event was very successful and enjoyed by all who attended.  Thanks to all of you who bought tickets and to all our members who supported this event in so many ways.  Your generosity buying tickets, making donations, and supplying cakes, savouries and prizes to keep costs down, as well as helping with the planning and smooth running of the day contributed to a marvellous outcome.  Including our online game, we have raised £828.60 for the Ukraine Disaster Appeal. Furness Building Society are matching this donation, so a total of £1657.20 has been donated.  This is a tremendous amount for such a small club.

Congratulations to Norma and June who scored an incredible 71.88 % on the day to come first in the bridge game.

In addition because of the wonderful amount of food available Carole took the remainder to the Homeless shelter in Barrow.  They were incredibly grateful and said their residents would feel very spoilt that evening!

I especially want to mention Carole, Trevor and Chris who worked all day to prepare everything and clear up after the event.  I know others helped them too and thanks for that.

Here are some photos Chris has sent me.  If anyone else took photos I will add them too if you send them to me, although it sounds to me like you were all too busy enjoying yourselves!

As a small group I think we have reason to feel very proud.
