Woolbrook sausage and mash success
Masquerade duo to hold play readings at sausage suppers to ease workload
A COUPLE from Newton Poppleford have raised �15,000 for Force cancer charity in six years with sausage and mash suppers.
This year four Sausage and Mash suppers;the last held at St Francis hall, Woolbrook, on Saturday, included performances of two one-act plays.
However, say Ken Davis and Ray Pickworth of Masquerade, any future ones will offer play readings.
Ray, who performed in the second play, Alan Bennett’s Say Something Happened, told a packed hall: “Because of Force we have been able to keep going with the suppers, by them providing transport and unloading sets, and I’d like to thank them all.

“A year ago I didn’t think we would be doing another show because of health problems, but we were determined to go on.
“This has got to be our last (with plays) but don’t write us off, we are certainly no going to knock the suppers on the head.”
