Said Louise: “We have a merry band of amazing volunteers who help out events.  Without these volunteers, our events could simply not go ahead.

“A huge thank you to everyone who came to the fete or bought a Grand Prize Draw ticket. You helped us raise an amazing £2122.

“Also special thanks to all the brilliant volunteers who helped out on the day. We couldn't have done it without you!”
