“Thank you” from Penny :

We made £437 which is very good for a couple of hours. We were very grateful for all the support we received from everyone which once again was fantastic . Everyone is always so kind and generous with cakes gifts for raffle and spending their money !! Thank you

And a bit extra from Katherine :

We might have just spent a couple of hours but Penny and her team of bakers and helpers put in much more effort than that. Well done on a lovely event! This has been running for several years now and we wouldn’t keep coming if it wasn’t so good.

Macmillan coffee morning

The Macmillan coffee morning on Friday 29th September was a great success. The usual team of tennis ladies got together and organised it . They were supported by so many people who brought delicious cakes and helped on the day where they could. Pat Seymour brought a wonderful quilt to raffle, Chris Butt brought her beautiful paintings and Rukeyah Sturgeon also donated a wonderful landscape painting to raffle. Anne Hanson brought her cards to sell and gave the money to the fund . Joan Jones brought such a fantastic cake that we gave that as a prize. All these ladies always support us with their beautiful work.

The raffle prizes that people donated were plentiful ! The raffle went on for half an hour! It was a lovely morning and so good to see lots of people who have always been part of the club there drinking delicious coffee and chatting to each other.

On Friday afternoon we banked £459 which will hopefully increase when gift aid is added. We would like to thank everyone who was there for making it such a successful event.
