Remembrance Sunday 2019

This was my 4th year doing the Post Remembrance Music Cafe at Snitterfield Village Hall. Angie Tomes, my co-host, does soooooooo much work for this event. From putting up the bunting to baking mountains of delicious treats, she really is the driving force.

Yet again, we had a full house. It was a complete whirlwind as the crowd arrived, fresh and chilled from the service at White Horse Hill. They laughed, chatted and socialised between mouthfuls of yummy cakes, brownies, biscuits and tea, before leaving to start their afternoons.

Thank you to Hilary and Mama for donating homemade cakes for us to sell too!

My laptop seemed to decide that Sundays were indeed days of rest, forcing me to sing A capella for half an hour. I did manage to put on some 40’s tracks (thanks for the help Mr. Mew) and we had a little dance, before counting all of the donations and helping to tidy up.

My chosen charity this year was Service Dogs UK. They provide dogs to veterans suffering from PTSD and seemed like a wonderful cause. There is so much proof to show that pets can be great therapy for depression and anxiety (I think they mean cats, dogs and fish, not tarantulas and scorpions). We raised £240 through donations and cake sales, so a HUGE thank you to everyone who came along.
