Saturday 12th July 2008 - Chocolate Cake and Coffee morning

On a pleasant enough day (for this summer!) a Chocolate Cake and Coffee morning took place in the garden of The Flying Chariot in Benton Street, Hadleigh in aid of The Alison Fracella Research Trust.

It was a pleasure to welcome so many people and to see them enjoying sitting in the pretty streamside garden and tucking into delicious homemade chocolate cake and drinking freshly brewed coffee.

It was a very worthwhile occasion, both in raising so much money and in being such a friendly happy time. We would like to heartily thank everyone who participated in this event; either by making such delicious cakes, brewing the coffee or by simply coming and being so generous.  The event raised £470. We will definitely repeat it.

Here are some pictures from the event.

Jun/Jul 2009: The Italian Job, x2

Two intrepid ladies, Merja and Catherine have struck a blow against brain cancer by organising two fundraising events, both with an Italian theme.

The first, on June 12th, was an Italian Supper and Casino attended by 60 people at Priory Hall, kindly made available  by Mr & Mrs A Hilton. Merja and Catherine prepared a magnificent three course supper, entirely in the Italian tradition, and followed this with a casino, providing much fun for all. See some pictures of the Supper here.

Shortly after the Supper, in July, Merja and Catherine set off on a sponsored bike ride from Bologna to Rome, 500km and rising about 2000ft. All went amazingly well and they have now returned a bit sore but not too stiff.  For more details and pictures see their blog.  

These events have each so far raised about £1000 for the Trust. You could swell the funds still further by following this link.

The Trust would like to thank the many people who contributed to the success of these events.

Sept 2009: Coffee and Chocolate Cake
