Sweet treats for char­ity

Canal Boat - - Letters -

COULD I, THROUGH your Let­ters page, thank all the boaters and walk­ers who sup­ported the Hill­mor­ton vol­un­teer lock-keepers’ Macmil­lan cof­fee morn­ing on Fri­day 30 Septem­ber?

This was the sec­ond time we had held a cof­fee morn­ing for this worth­while cause and were over the moon to have raised a su­per £ 313.60, plus 1 euro.

To raise this money, most of the vol­un­teer lock-keepers, to­gether with sev­eral lo­cal res­i­dents, had baked cakes and bis­cuits to be sold for dona­tions. We also had some home-made dog­gie bis­cuits which went down a treat (with the dogs, that is).

Our thanks also go to Les­lie from the Canal Chef who re­fused to sell cakes on the day and in­stead sent her cus­tomers down to us.

Thanks to all the lock-keepers (see at­tached photo) who took part and let’s hope we can beat this to­tal next year.
