Chernobyl's Children Coffee Morning

We would like to thank everyone who supported the Chernobylís Children Coffee Morning at The Old Church House on 27th June.

Including donations, we raised £1,092, which is a fantastic result, but we still have a long way to go in raising the money needed to fund next yearís trip.

This year nine children have spent a month staying with families in the area.  The Van Dijks kindly hosted Katya and, for a second year, Angelina stayed with me.  I know that we are all very sad to say goodbye!

An enormous thankyou to everyone who helped at the Coffee Morning in any way.  We are very lucky to have a wonderful team of helpers, and this event could not happen without them.

A special thankyou to Lilian at the Tysoe Post Office for her incredible generosity in donating a huge amount of clothes for the children to take back to Belarus with them.

P.S. The actual amount raised on the morning was £639.  The bottle of Pimms was won by Diana Robinson of Hampton Lucy, who estimated £630.
