Our first event of the year has been a success! The coffee morning held at our Eastrington Office on Saturday 14th July was set up in order to raise money for local charity ‘Pricklington Palace’, a voluntary hedgehog sanctuary.
Pricklington Palace is a small (13 bedded) sanctuary for hedgehogs. The sanctuary is run singlehandedly on a purely voluntary basis in the hope of helping this threatened indigenous species survive in a very difficult environment.
The £3 entry event included a tea/coffee and a large slice of cake as well as a wide range of games and stalls including: Cake Stall, Plant Sale, Book and DVD Stall, Guess the name of the teddy, knitted clothes and toys, a raffle and tombola.
The event proved to be a great success with the weather holding out and over £700 raised on the day. The proceeds will go towards helping fund vet bills for Pricklington Palace.
Thank you and well done to all of those involved with the day, giving up their time to plan the event, create and source things to sell and also look after stands.
