Coffee Morning is Plain Sailing for MVS
There was enough tea to sink a battleship when the kind-hearted residents of a Newcastle sheltered housing complex baked cakes and held a raffle in aid of the charity.
More than £250 was raised for the Northumbria Unit thanks to the efforts of residents of Iris Steedman House in Newcastle’s West End.
One of the residents, June McDonald is a regular fund raiser for the unit as her son John is a member.
Head of Unit Angela Carrington said; “We couldn’t believe the buzz in the place, there were tombola’s, raffles and loads of cake.
We are very grateful to all at Iris Steedman House as the money raised will help us to buy much needed equipment so that we can do our work on the region’s rivers.”
