Fund raising Saturday

Parting with their money

Saturday in Old Buckenham was a day for raising money for two local good causes.

In the afternoon there was a Spring Fayre in the Church Rooms to provide some funds for the Senior Citizens Christmas lunch that will take place early in 2010. Many of the people who will enjoy the free lunch were there manning the stalls or spending their money to buy raffle tickets, plants, refreshments and bric-a-brac.

In the evening the Village Hall was filled with around eighty people who came to listen to David Hannah talk about his experiences on a trip to Nepal and to bid for items in an auction of 'experiences'. Initial calculations show that this event raised £870 which will go towards the upkeep of All Saints Church. A longer report will appear on the blog within the next few days.
