Fundraiser on behalf of Haven House Hospice & WGEL Juniors
Saturday 21st September saw WGEL host a Bring And Buy Sale which included a BBQ. It was a very lovely warm, sunny day. The purpose of the day was to try and raise as much money for Haven House Hospice and the WGEL Juniors. It was really overwhelming to see the generosity of the WGEL community before the event, and this continued with the help on the day. The club's togetherness really showed in trying to make this a success, and although the turnout from the general public was not as much as expected and/or hoped, this still didn't deter the spirits. At the end of the event, there was a lot of stuff left over, which Haven House said they would come and collect to distribute to their shops, so it won't go to waste. The final total, after deductions, is likely to be around £500.00, so a good £250.00 to each cause.
I would like to reiterate that without the help from those dedicated volunteers both before the day and on the day, this simply would not have happened, so WELL DONE to you all.
