Haddenham folk are a very charitable bunch, as recent fundraising events have so clearly demonstrated.
On Friday morning 3rd October, Haddenham Community Junior School sold cakes made by the children and parents at the very modest price of just 20p each — and yet they managed to raise a very impressive £273 for Macmillan. That's an awful lots of cakes! Well done to all.
One week earlier, Tim Armitt (vocals) and Gus Orchard (pianoforte) hosted another of their popular evenings of musical entertainment based on the compositions of Flanders and Swann, and raised an impressive £530 for the Utugi Street Children Kenya Project.
And on Saturday evening 4th October, Freda Dorrell, with very able assistance from Thame Children's Choir and the Chinnor Silver Band and compere Tim Armitt (it's that man again!) hosted a delightful concert in St Mary's Church which raised no less than £650 for Freda's favourite charities, 'Hearing Dogs for Deaf People' and 'Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research'.
