Attending the event, along with many members of the Catholic parish, were neighbours, friends, and members of local walking groups and other churches who all came along to sit in the sunshine, chat, drink tea and coffee and indulge in a delicious cream tea or cakes.

Linda said “The usual stalls were bursting with crafts, books, plants, bric-a-brac and cakes. The raffle was as popular as usual and the helpers were hardworking and cheerful. Our total raised was the best yet at £1140! Richard and I thank all our helpers and everyone who came along to make the event such a success”.

All our huge thanks to Linda and Richard, all their fantastic team and all wh0 supported the event. All of the money raised with completely transform peoples lives around the world through CAFOD and our inspirational partners!
