Despite the indifferent season (to put it mildly), we had an excellent round of openings for the scheme and the charities that it supports. Apart from the opening on Jubilee Bank Holiday Monday, we entertained groups during the first three weeks of June. In fact donations were only a few pounds short of last year’s record total, at just over £2,900.
Most of this income goes to the NGS, which in turn supports Nursing and Caring charities, including Macmillan, Marie Curie, Help the Hospices, Cross Roads Care, The Queens Nursing Institute and Perennial. In addition this year a donation will be going to The Alzheimer’s Society.
Locally we supported the Rainbows Children’s Hospice, by donating £680 of the above total, made from our Home-made Teas.
If you would like to know more about the NGS take a look at their website (www.ngs.org.uk) or give me a call (575791).
A big thank you to all of you that supported us, by helping on the day or coming to visit.
