We would like to thank everyone for enthusiastically supporting this. I am sure they will be delighted to see how the money has been used.” Cake vouchers were awarded in the raffle, with a top prize of £40. The charity event was also supported by suppliers including Wright’s Flour and Bako London and South East.
