Saturday 9th November 2019 saw our annual Captain’s Charity Coffee Morning and which was well attended. There were various stalls including beautiful homemade items, cakes and a bottle tombola. We held two raffles – one for a fabulous Christmas stocking made by one of our lady members and the other usual bumper raffle with approximately 30 prizes. Thanks to everyone who made the event a successful one and for all the generous donations towards prizes. We are extremely pleased that we were able to raise £500 for The Torbay Eye Clinic which was this year’s charity and we were privileged to welcome the lady from the Eye Clinic to collect the cheque. Well done everyone !
With thanks to everyone, Marilyn Moodie and Keith Fursdon
