Donington on Bain £170 fundraiser

DONINGTON on Bain Village Hall was decorated with bunting when residents and friends were invited to a tea party to give a boost to funds and on a lovely sunny afternoon visitors were able to enjoy tea and cakes outdoors too if they wished.

Tables were laid with pretty cloths and vases of flowers and all were able to make their choice from a tempting selection of delicious home made cakes that had all been donated, at what proved to be a happy social afternoon. The event was well supported and those on duty in the kitchen, including Kathy Olsson, Tracy Burnham, Helen Girdley, Barbara Mohan and Sally Cosgrove were pleased to welcome the members of a cycling club that were passing through too, resulting in proceeds of £170 being raised for hall funds.

There has been a request for a repeat later in the year, possibly to start fundraising for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration.
