Delicious Treats on Offer

The good people of Haddenham proved yet again how good they are at supporting a worthy cause on Saturday morning 15th March, when they contributed in so many different ways to make the Cafe & Sale for Syria a great success.

At the time of writing, the organisers have gathered together £3,200 and more money is still coming in. This is an amazingly generous response to a modest local event.

The great hit of the day, at least in terms of fundraising, was the silent auction: this raised well over £1000 (and rising) as bids flooded in for meals, holiday breaks and workshops in various crafts.

The refreshments stall never stopped being busy, as cakes appeared from every corner of Haddenham and were immediately eaten or snapped up by people who know good baking when they see it! And the range of homemade soups and bread for lunch capped the day off splendidly and fragrantly.

Many thanks to all the people who helped in advance and on the day, to those who cooked and baked, who gave money and donations, and to those who came and supported us on the day.

The money is being sent to the Oxfam Syria Appeal via Keir Thorogood, a son of Haddenham, who has been working tirelessly to help the people of Syria who have been so terribly affected by conflict over the last three years.

Pictured top right is the primary team of organisers: Lizzie Bannister, Chris Thorogood, Alison Court, Sue Childs and Jenny Hardy. A great many other folk helped and contributed to the event.
