Bingo bonus from Letcombe Regis

 It was eyes down at Letcombe Regis Village Hall, near Wantage, when a bumper bingo raised £600 for the Hapy House family.
Russell, Grace and Des
The event was hosted by Brenda Groves and family, who are our very good friends. Brenda's granddaughter Grace Dunbar, who will be volunteering with us next summer, was there helping on her 18th birthday.
Brenda's brother, Russell Stock, gave up a lot of his time to organise the evening as did his friend Des Williams who was the caller.  
There were just a few blushes from Grace when everyone burst into a chorus of Happy Birthday specially for her!
Brenda said: Thanks to all my family and friends who came, many with children. All the
prizes were donated either by friends or local businesses and we are extremeley grateful to them all."
With just over £600 raised at the bingo and other money raised by Grace with car boot sales and other fundraising, it brings us a very welcome £783.89.
Thank you to everyone who has helped in any way.
