Thursday 23rd November saw the Edwinstowe Hospice Support Group in action, fundraising on Edwinstowe High Street during the Christmas lights evening. Once again, their stall with its Christmas hamper raffle prizes proved a successful venture and they raised a very pleasing £318.00.
On the following Saturday, 25th November, the group held a Coffee Morning in the Village Hall where they were pleased to be able to present a cheque for £7,000 to Diane Humphreys, Hospice Trust Manager. This sum was raised in the previous 12 months from events and donations and takes the amount given to the John Eastwood Hospice over the life time of the group to £117,495. Despite competition from Christmas shopping and other events, the morning itself raised £483.00.
The group wishes to thank all its supporters and helpers who have assisted the group with its mission to successfully raise funds over the years. Thanks also to the Pet Shop, Pharmacy and Mills in Edwinstowe for allowing the group to place Christmas collecting boxes on their counters.
Don’t miss the group’s Plant Sale and Coffee Morning on Saturday 26th May in Edwinstowe Village Hall from 10.00am to 11.45am. You will find a great atmosphere and lots of flower and vegetable plants for sale.
