Community coffee morning for charity

Community coffee morning for charity

A COMMUNITY coffee morning in Henley raised £366.97 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Paula Isaac, vice-chairwoman of Gainsborough Residents’ Association, organised the event at the scout hut in Greys Road on Saturday.

About 40 people attended and were served coffee and cake in return for a donation.

Mrs Isaac provided shop-bought cakes but many people brought homemade cakes with them. Lorraine Hiller, who runs the Hot Gossip coffee house in Friday Street, provided a coffee and walnut cake and a fruit cake, while Starbucks donated coffee.

here was also a raffle with prizes including a £25 voucher from Brakspear and lessons from Brum Brum Driving School.

Mrs Isaac, who lost her aunt Elaine Ruffel to cancer 10 years ago, said: “I’m really happy with the amount raised, which far exceeded my expectations.”

She thanked Henley scout leader Dave Adamson for allowing use of the hut.
