Report from Birchley Open day
A Big thank you to everyone who came and made our Open day such a success.
The final total came to £1863 20 with a bonus from the German TV company who filmed last Wednesday and sent a donation of £100.
So we didn’t quite make the £2000 but Gift Aid Tax claw back most certainly will.
Thank you everyone for bringing the fine weather with you, it really made our day.
A generous donator is sending a cheque to make our total up to £2,000 – isn’t that generous?.
Jennifer & Drummond
