Fundraising for Syria

Coffee Morning 10

The impromptu coffee morning for Syria was warmly and generously supported by a number delightful villagers, who together raised more than £500 for Oxfam's work with people who have fled the conflict — to other parts of Syria and and to Lebanon and Jordan. If you would like to add to this magnificent total, please feel free to drop a donation round to Alison at 32 High Street, by the end of this week — 18th October — and we will forward it to Oxfam, where a son of the village, Keir Thorogood, will receive it gratefully.

With many thanks to everyone who has supported our efforts.
