We know what fantastic work you do within the community and if this donation helps that to continue we will all be delighted.

To everyone who worked and helped at last Sunday’s Christmas afternoon tea. Thank you very much. I really enjoyed myself. I spoke to people I had not seen for at least 30-40 years.
