Caroline Cooper and Lucy Dowson would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to their fund-raising efforts for Dom and Silvi of Café Cibo. Their 10K run raised £265 via collection boxes and attracted some online contributions too!
The ladies who both achieved good times for the run (approx. 53 minutes), would like to thank St Mary's CE and Haddenham Community Infant Schools, the Kings Head and Rose & Thistle pubs and the White Hart Studio for allowing them to collect.
The money will be passed on to Silvi this week. Thank you for all your support!
Caroline & Lucy
Note from the editor:
Haddenham.net has been very pleased to support fundraising by Haddenham residents and staff in local businesses in response to Dom's ill-health and the impact this has had on Sylvi and Cafe Cibo. We were able to establish an online charitable donation facility in collaboration with Make-a-Donation, and Sylvi has been extremely grateful for the help this has provided at an extremely difficult time.
The online donation facility has now been formerly closed. Thank you to everyone who contributed. The expression of love and support for Dom & Sylvi has been truly astonishing.
