An update from Helen Lewis on the fundraising afternoon tea held at the Youth & Community Centre on Sunday afternoon, 7th June.
We raised an amazing £949, all in aid of Cancer Research UK. This amount will be added to our ongoing team total for Relay for Life, now standing at £2200 and, with other money to come from collection tubs, we hope to make £2500.
Thank you to absolutely everyone who was involved, whether you came along and ate cake and purchased raffle tickets or donated prizes and cakes or as team Haddenham's Hopefuls did, waited tables.
Haddenham is a very special village and the people never fail to amaze me with their generosity.
Thank you once again.
