Charity Coffee Morning

Erin Kelly made an excellent guest speaker at our Charity Coffee Morning, held to raise funds for CLIC Sargent.  Erin gave an extremely interesting and humorous talk on her work as a novelist and the difficulties of getting a book published. After her talk Erin held a book-signing event and donated 10% of her sales to CLIC Sargent.

Joel and his team baked a massive cake and iced it with the CLIC Sargent logo.  They donated their masterpiece to the ladies 'guess the weight of the cake' competition that was won by Danielle Reid, with an exact guess of 8.5 kilos.  Yes!  I said it was massive! We also held a raffle to raise funds and 'thank you' to the guys in the bar who supported us by buying tickets, even though, they never got a slice of cake!

The Chesfield Downs Ladies gave fantastic support to the event and invited friends and family to join us, meaning we had over 50 people attending.  We were also joined my Lucia Martinez, the CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager for Hertfordshire.  Lucia has supported all our major charity events this year and will be back for the Xmas Greensomes, when we will present her with a cheque for the total amount raised by the Ladies for CLIC Sargent over 2013.
