Sunday brunch serves up charity cash
Posted on September 29, 2009
A Sunday brunch has raised more than £750 for charity - and Barclays Bank has matched that pound for pound to double the total.
Eaton Bray villager Sally Siddons, a former Barclays employee, organised the event, attended by more than 60 people.
The cash was raised for Iain Rennie Hospice At Home, a charity which helped Sally's mother and some close friends at the end of their lives.
Barclays gave a contribution as part of its community investment programme pound for pound matched funding scheme.
Beryl Bishop, a volunteer Iain Rennie nurse, said: "The day was a great success. I really enjoyed the event. It was hard work, but a lot of fun, and it is great to raise so much money for such a good cause."
