Coffee morning will help hospice
10:37am Friday 5th October 2012 in News
A coffee morning is being held at Steeton on Saturday to raise funds for the Martin House children’s hospice.
The event is the latest in a series staged by villager Lynda Corser and her family and friends. Proceeds go to Martin House, at Boston Spa, in memory of Mrs Corser’s late nephew, Andrew Pratt, who died there in 1998 at the age of 12.
Saturday’s coffee morning will take place in St Stephen's Church Hall from 10am to noon and will include stalls, a raffle and tombola.
There will also be hand-crafted cards by Lesley Jackson and Mrs Corser’s daughter Fiona will have a stall selling Martin House items, including Christmas cards.
“We’ve been doing two coffee mornings a year now for about the last eight years and they’ve grown and grown,” said Mrs Corser.
“It all started with just a few friends and raised about £40 – now we are raising around £600-700 each time.”
