Defibrillator Table Top Day Great Success.

The SPED committee were all kept busy on Saturday Morning, Feb 7th 2015 with the SPED Table Top fund raising day. A regular flow of locals and visitors, some from as far away as Boyton! arrived to buy from the table top stalls and join in the raffle for the top prize, the Valentine Cake, donated by Louise Finn.
Committee chairman, Phil Fox and Paul Barham manned the kitchen, pouring well over fifty cups of tea and coffee. " It was wonderful to see so many people enjoying a cup of tea, homemade cake and a good old chat. We were all surprised and encouraged by the turnout and support for this worthwhile project. I would like to thank both all those who attended as well as the table top sellers and the committee. "

The day raised over £330 .
