Chris and I were delighted to hold a pie and a pint fundraiser on Saturday night (11th June).
We were thrilled that so many people took the time to come along and absolutely staggered at everyone’s generosity. It was great for us to meet new people but also heartening to see people meeting Facebook friends! We raised over £700 and donations are still coming in!
Particular thanks to Gadds for their assistance, Sheree Bell for awesome vegan pies, Theresa Smith for salads, Pimms and vital ice supplies at the last minute. Kate Hamlyn must be thanked for her award winning pork pie, Jane Heatherington for carnivore beef and carrot special. Keith Veness gets a special mention for his mind blowing curries.
Can we also thank Jenny Matterface – who somehow in the midst of a chaotic party managed to sell and draw a raffle! How did she do that?
Raising spirits, raising funds and building solidarity. What better way of spending a Saturday night?
