Alton Webteam: June 2015
The coffee morning run by the Boys' Brigade Juniors and Anchors on 13th June was a great success. The junior boys waited at table, serving some 50 or more people during the morning. There was a wonderful array of cakes and freshly made drinks and plenty of happy chatter. Most importantly, the princely sum of £214.46 was raised for Naomi House and Jack's Place hospices and a little more is expected from the sale of some of the cakes at church coffee tomorrow morning.
Thanks goes to all those who helped on the day and to everyone who donated cakes.
