Our annual Christmas Coffee Morning and Grand Prize Draw was held on 1st December 2018 at the Town Hall. As usual it was very well attended and the move from the back room to the main hall gave much more space for guests and stalls.
The Draw included almost 30 prizes generously provided by a number of local businesses and individuals and we are very grateful for everyone's support.
The event raised almost £1200 from the sale of draw tickets, takings at the door and profit from the sales of Heather's cards and Ann Harris' gift stall.
Jill Dyke kindly paid for the printing of draw tickets and Anne Edge was responsible for coordinating sales and was helped on the day by Beryl Gilbert.
Mark Spurdens, Chair of the Fundraising Team thanked everyone involved including the back-room helpers and those who baked and supplied mince pies.
Particular thanks must be given to a number of local businesses who provided prizes:
ABP, Barlows, Blakemere Veterinary Centre, Bowen, Son and Watson, Halls, Hibberts LLP, Lily the Pink, Mere Motors, Mr. Mod, Morris Cook and Co., The Boathouse, The Ellesmere Hotel, The Red Lion, Tesco, TG Builders Merchants and Vermeulens.
