Thank you to everyone who so kindly supported our eighth annual Macmillan Fundraiser over last weekend (Friday, 29th and Saturday, 30th September 2017).
For those of you who were unable to attend, it was a truly heart-warming day with plenty of clowns, ringmasters, mime artists, harlequins and clairvoyants who participated in our ‘Circus’ themed charity event.
The garden attractions included a bric-a-brac sale, palmistry, wine tombola, silent auction and raffle. A steady stream of customers filled the tearooms with laughter and colour, and copious amounts of scones, teas & coffees were consumed.
It was a fun filled day, setting the scene for our second charity bike ride on Saturday. Over 45 riders set off with a choice of three routes; 20km, 50km and 100km, through the Hertfordshire countryside.
We are truly thankful to everyone who said ‘keep the change’, donated, helped over the two days, baked a cake or supported the event.
A special mention also to my wonderful staff who worked so hard before, during and afterwards, and smiled and had fun throughout.
The combined total raised this year has exceeded £5,000-00, with donations still being received, and will be divided equally between Macmillan and Cancer Hair Care (our chosen local charity). The funds will, hopefully, help give comfort to someone suffering with cancer.
Thanks again, we couldn’t have done it without you….
