Alton Webteam: June 2017
The Boys' Brigade Junior Section and Anchor Boys would like to thank everyone who supported the coffee morning which took place on Saturday 10th June. Thanks to those who helped, those who came to the event and those who made donations. The coffee morning was a great success and £205 have been raised for the Toilet Twinning charity.
At £60 per toilet we've raised enough for nearly 3 and a half toilets!
The Company Section boys also held a sponsored 12 hour event from 9th to 10th June and when we know how much they raised we'll let you know.
Great effort, everyone!!
