Macmillan thanks

The Barnstaple Macmillan Committee would like to thank everyone who held coffee mornings on our behalf in and around North Devon. In particular, our thanks to:

l Squires Fish ’n’ Chips, who raised �1,597.43 – a big thank-you to all who attended and contributed, and especially to the members of the Squires and Brend families.

l Marwood Hill Gardens, who along with “Sage the Owl” raised �1,741.03.

l Bensons Restaurant in Appledore who raised �2,010.

There were many more and our grateful thanks to all who supported the event.

A team of collectors also raised further funds in Marks & Spencer (our corporate partners for the WBCM) and the sum of �633.57 was collected. Many thanks also to Kevin Allen and the team at The Cedars Inn for hosting an event.

We also held a very successful charity quiz evening at Fullam Chinese Restaurant on Tuesday, September 25, which raised �980.75 – our thanks to James Li, Alan Davy and their staff, and to George Hammett, our quizmaster!
