Pie and Ale evening success.

Fun at the pie and Ale evening

From Emma Adams

MASSIVE thank you to everyone who came yesterday evening, I hope you all enjoyed it!

We just squeaked over the £1000 threshold, which is absolutely amazing – funds desperately needed for the Play Area.

It just wouldn’t be possible to raise that much money in an evening and eat so handsomely without the mammoth effort and generosity of everyone who brought along all the pies and puds – the array was amazing, and we had just enough (phew!)

~ Thanks also to the stalwart effort of the ladies in the kitchen who ploughed through all of that washing up and kept smiling – Judy, Cheryl, Carol & Sarah are stars!

~ Also, to Ian who gamely held the evening together and amused us with tales of diy haggis and cow parts… And to Rob for toasting the beast!

~ To Kathy & Roger Down for a fascinating and enjoyable quiz, which was pitched just right.

~ And to Mark Watch of Moonshine who brought along the ales and tales of brewing. He kindly donated £30 from his takings to the total.

This is how the figures stacked up:

Balance of ticket sales after some costs  £654.93

Raffle    £214

Bar / donations £138.65

Moonshine         £30

Less License        £21

& Quiz prize        £15

1001.58

Thanks of course to Emma herself who worked so hard to arrange this very enjoyable event.
