On Friday evening, 16th December, friends and supporters of Haddenham Community Library gathered to see the lucky draw made for the two lovely Christmas hampers, raffled to raise funds for the Library.
Two hampers were up for grabs — one with items especially gathered to delight children and the other containing goodies with greater appeal to adults.
Renowned children's author and Haddenham resident, Steve Cole, kindly made the children's hamper draw and the family of Roger Rickard was the lucky winner.
The winner of the adult hamper was the Barlow family, from Meadle.
Also present were senior members of Haddenham & District Rotary. This august organisation had generously included Haddenham Community Library among its list of charities this year, and Frank Readman presented HCL trustee and Honorary Treasurer, Tim Mozley, with a cheque for £2,000.
Larraine Gooch, another of the library trustees, also took the opportunity to thank all the hard-working volunteers for helping to ensure that the library is such a welcoming and attractive place to meet and learn.
She also thanked the two professional staff, Manager Emma Foster and her Assistant, Ali Gilbert, who are particularly instrumental in making Haddenham Community Library such a successful operation.
