A lovely sunny day on June 26 meant that members and their guests could enjoy our garden party to the full in the beautiful surroundings of Thurstons, Rendham (thanks to John & Lindi Carrington). Half the proceeds from the day went to Lindi & John's preferred Suffolk-based charity, STOW (Supporting Tanzanian Orphans and Widows). Lindi had prepared a garden guide and a related quiz for people walking round the garden and grounds. There were stalls for books, plants, bric-a-brac and florists' sundries, a raffle and a truly delicious tea with home-made cakes and scones. Thanks to all who came and all who cooked, prepared & worked to make the party such a success.
We received a thank you letter from STOW Chair and Founder, Marie Adams, who tells us our contribution amazingly will support seven children to go to primary school for one year - uniform, bag, books, pens, school subs - and a bar of soap to wash their uniforms.
