Coffee morning cash success

SIR - May I, through your columns, express our gratitude to everyone who helped at, or attended, the coffee morning in aid of Children’s Hospice SW on October 27?

The excellent presentation by Paul Curtis, the area fundraising manager, inspired members of the Methodist Church Guild to contribute generously at their meeting the previous evening, and the enthusiasm carried on to the coffee morning the next day. The net result was a magnificent sum of �616.30 for CHSW to continue the wonderful support given to those families with life-limited children in our Hospices at Little Bridge House and Charlton Farm.

It is a stark fact that, even in this day and age, there are over one thousand children, in the south-west alone, with life-limiting conditions, so the work of the CHSW is greatly valued by those families who are able to have respite there.

If anyone would like further information regarding supporting this wonderful charity, please contact the undersigned.
