Our fundraising efforts were continued with a coffee morning held at the Eyre Chapel, in Newbold, Chesterfield. As well as being a building of fascinating historical interest it commands tremendous views over the Derbyshire hills.
Following on from last year’s Ribbon Project, there was a lavender theme – both in the cakes and scones on offer and in a variety of knitted and craft products for sale. Once again Marjorie Thorne put in much hard work beforehand to make the event a success and there was an excellent turnout of members to help on the day.
A steady stream of visitors turned up, despite the morning starting wet and windy. The event raised over £300 which will be shared between HNChelp and NALC.
More pictures will be available in the gallery shortly.
