Domesco cooks up a treat for hospice
A SHOP’S charity coffee morning has raised more than £200 for a hospice.
Owner of Domesco, in High Street, Chesham, Brian Ridgley organised the fundraising event recently in a bid to raise cash for the Hospice of St Francis.
As well as teas and coffees being available, there were also cooking demonstrations and tips, cakes to take home in gift boxes and a raffle.
Mr Ridgley, who is also a keen photographer, also sold some of his photographs with donations being made to the hospice.
It is estimated the morning made more than £100 and Mr Ridgley vowed to match the total raised, meaning more than £200 was raised.
Mr Ridgley added: “It went very well and it was good fun. The hospice is also very pleased.”
Mr Ridgley did the event in aid of the Hospice of St Francis as it cared for the company’s former owner Ken Tunaley, who founded the business in 1955 but died two years ago.
