Oh My God, did it rain! However, we made the most of it. As usual John & Jackie opened their garden to all to raise funds for charity, especially us. Entry was FREE and we want to thank those that turned up an supported us. The cafe was open for Jackie’s famous speciality coffee’s, cakes and pastries and there was loads of music supplied by John and his musical friends! There were toys for the kids to play with, a tombola, a raffle and we raised funds for both Winstons Wish & ourselves, Middlewichann.
A special shout out must go to musicians Gennaro Fiondella, Collette McKeown, Helen Rich, Harry Hussey, John Penny and our own John Romero. They travelled from as far afield as Glasgow (yes, Scotland) and Worthing on the south coast which is even further away. What more all services and their travel costs were donated by them and cost us nothing! Our thanks also go out to group members that helped with special mentions going to Paddy, Ceri, Emma & Meghan (who will also be getting a gold star as soon as I can find time to write the article.
As soon as we get our treasurer, Janet, to come and confirm the amounts raised we will let you know here!
Below is two of our artistes (Gennaro Fiondella & Colette McKeown) playing.
