Great community effort raises funds for tsunami victims
One comment on social media was all it took for a group of volunteers in Torpoint to come together to raise funds for the Indonesia Tsunami disaster.
A quick meeting was held and a coffee morning and table top sale was arranged in the band hut with the proceeds to be donated to shelterbox.
The kitchen volunteers were kept busy all morning serving hot drinks and bacon baps, with homemade soup on offer for the later arrivals.
A raffle was held with most of the prizes having been generously donated by local traders in the town and special thanks to Sainsbury’s for their donation of tea, coffee and bread rolls.
With the cake stall doing a brisk sale and the other stalls doing well the total raised was just over £460, with the possibility of more to come. Huge thanks to all concerned, Well done Torpoint!
