The gathering of members and supporters at the Woolpack last Monday had several purposes. One key thought was to take the chance to raise money for St Peter & St James Hospice, to which we regularly donate, and it proved to be a successful effort, with two Ridgeview hampers bringing in a tidy sum.
Key fundraiser at SPSJ, Carolyn Robinson, said …
I wanted to email you to thank BHBPA for supporting the Hospice at the recent Christmas Event at the Woolpack. We were very touched by the generosity of the attendees and altogether the raffle raised a magnificent £218 for the charity. What a lovely start to the month!
It was great to see so many familiar faces there and also have the opportunity to say farewell to Paul as Chair.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas!
