A Sweet Way To Fund-Raise.
10:34am Wednesday 18th June 2014 in News
Malvern people proved they have a sweet tooth, at a fund-raising event for the local branch of Sight Concern Worcestershire.
The event put more than 50 sweets and puddings on the table at St Andrew's Church Hall, Poolbrook Common, and raised over £600 for days out, coach trips and other entertainment for club members.
The grand pudding challenge, called the "Sweets and Treats Evening," was organised by club member, Barbara Rylands, aged 80, who said: "It was a great evening and I’m sure nobody went home needing supper!”
On offer were a range of temptations from sticky toffee puddings to bread and butter puddings, not to mention trifles and banoffee pie.
Guests at the event ranged in age from thirteen to 96, and many of the older members were driven to the evening by the club’s volunteer drivers. .
Mrs Pauline Cooper, Vice Chair, said “Our members have varying degrees of sight loss, and we need more volunteer drivers and sighted helpers to assist with our regular club meetings and social events.”
Further volunteer drivers will be welcomed, and anyone seeking further details should phone, 01684 574346.
