New Suf­folk event raises money for East Anglia Chil­dren’s Hospice

Mini Magazine - - News -

Wat­tisham Mini Club con­tin­ued its ex­cel­lent char­ity work by host­ing a new event at Black­thorpe Barn near Bury St Ed­munds on April 9. The event was held in aid of East Anglia Chil­dren’s Hospice (EACH), a cause close to the club’s heart as one of its very ac­tive mem­bers, Robin Mid­dle­ton, has a young son named Char­lie who re­lies heav­ily on the char­ity.

Char­lie’s Mini Ad­ven­ture was the cul­mi­na­tion of six month’s hard work, at­tract­ing great sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses and fel­low Mini clubs, with the venue kindly host­ing the event at no cost. De­spite heavy rain over 30 Minis and Steve Cooper’s Dodge Charger were present at the Stow­mar­ket meet­ing point, with hot food, a raf­fle and sev­eral other stalls help­ing to raise plen­ti­ful smiles at Black­thrope. De­spite the con­di­tions the club man­aged to raise an im­pres­sive £840.46, and plans to make Char­lie’s Mini Ad­ven­ture a reg­u­lar an­nual event.

Robin and Char­lie.
