Char­ity event proves to be a great suc­cess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A LUX­U­RI­OUS char­ity event of­fer­ing treats for res­i­dents was a big hit.

The first Hamp­ton Treats For All event took place at the Hamp­ton Vale Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, rais­ing money for The Rosie Cam­paign.

The Rosie Cam­paign, for a new ma­ter­nity ward at Ad­den­brooke’s Hospi­tal in Cam­bridge has been set up to help re­search and treat­ment of Hy­pox­i­cIs­chemic En­cephalopa­thy (HIE).

At the event there was a a va­ri­ety of stalls from lo­cal shops and busi­nesses, a Min­nie Mouse mas­cot, bouncy cas­tle, face painter, Faye and the Desert Dancers and a char­ity raf­fle.

Or­gan­iser Ni­cola Burgess said the event had been a great suc­cess.

She said: “We raised £91.50 from the char­ity raf­fle.

“The day was a great suc­cess es­pe­cially for be­ing the first one, had roughly 200 peo­ple through the door.

She added: “We had great feed­back from the stall hold­ers that at­tended and can­not wait to at­tend the next one.”

Plans for the next event are now un­der­way, with it sched­uled to take place on Au­gust, with a fur­ther Christ­mas event on De­cem­ber 1.
