Throughout 2017 a grand total of £450 was raised by the ladies section on behalf of charity. Income was generated through raffles and tombolas, but the majority was raised by holding two bridge drives. The charity to benefit is the Old & Abbey Church Food Bank in Arbroath.
Arthur Pritchard, a representative of the charity, gave a short talk at the Ladies Annual Meeting last Wednesday. He explained how their service works – where they receive referrals from, why the service is needed and demand is growing, and the difference our donation will make as they will be able to stock up on much needed staple supplies. Arthur also brought a thank you letter which has been pinning to the ladies notice board.
