Alton Webteam: February 2016
The Boys' Brigade 'posh' coffee morning in support of the RNLI was a great success on Saturday 13th February. It was a busy morning with a happy buzz of conversation. Six boys from the Junior Section served the guests with lots and lots of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The cake stall was also well frequented and all but cleared — just a few cakes left for the Sunday congregation to buy the next day.
Local RNLI representatives came to the coffee morning with lots of information in the form of display boards, leaflets and a video which ran on the big screen throughout the morning. They also had flags and balloons along with a stall of RNLI souvenirs which proved popular, especially with the children
At the end of the morning £168.91 had been raised from the sale of drinks and cakes with £106.30 from the souvenir stall making a grand total of £280.23 for the RNLI. The Boys' Brigade and the RNLI would like to thank everyone who supported the event, by coming along and by donating cakes.
