Macmillan Coffee Morning - Hungerford's Best Yet

on 20 October 2016.

The Macmillan Coffee Morning at the United Reformed Church was the most successful to date, raising an astonishing £1473. Now in its 5th year, the money raised last week brings the grand total up to £4902, proving that Hungerford is a small town with a big heart.

The event was busy from start to finish and had many visitors who came to enjoy coffee, cake, raffle prizes and auction lots. Chris Buck played lovely music and local actor Nick Lumley officiated over the drawing of the raffle. Organiser Fiona Hobson would like to thank: Debbie Padgen, Chris Buck, David Bunney, Hilary Kelly, Judy Neale, Chris Cragg, Stephen Berryman, Stephen Hobson, Amanda Wood & Nick Lumley.
