Macmillan pennies

Every penny counts when one is fundraising, and we managed to collect quite a few pennies together today!

The raffle, thanks to the hard work of my friend, Joyce, raked in just over £100 which was amazingly good, and the donations for tea, coffee and cakes amounted to just over £60, so all in all, we have about £170 in the pot to send off to the charity from this morning's event.  The chapel was packed out at one point and we had to make room for a party of latecoming gentlemen (yes, the FH and his mates!) by getting out more chairs and an extra table.  

It was lovely to have so many people there.

We had our yesterday at school and we loved it!

Such a brilliant idea, the highest coffee morning was in a fighter jet plane, the lowest in a mine in Cornwall.
