Thank you to everyone who came to our Tea for Tinnitus drop-in on Saturday 21st September 2019.

We raised a total of £207 with £104 going to the British Tinnitus Association and £103 going to village hall funds.

It was great to see so many new faces enjoying the teas, coffees, Lashford sausage and bacon sandwiches and the tombola.

Two American tourists were among those enjoying the atmosphere of a traditional English village hall event, Sue Mullins from Louisville and Jackie Barnes from Wichita, were both staying with relatives and friends in Broom, in Warwickshire.

One of the visitors Jackie Barnes, said afterwards: “Thank you for welcoming us with such warmth . We had a wonderful time experiencing an English fundraising event and for such a good cause”.
