By Audlem Fancy Dress Charity Club (AFDCC) - 11th September 2012 7:05am
We, the newly formed Audlem Fancy Dress Charity Club, would like to take this opportunity to thank you the people of Audlem and surrounding areas for their support at our first Annual Fancy Dress Event in aid of Breast Cancer UK.
We raised £2643.05 and this total will be added to thanks to the hostelries and small businesses in the village. We have had a jar of 5p coins going round these establishments with 'guess the amount' sheets.
The people of Audlem have been more than generous in support of this and we expect to add a substantial amount to what has already been raised. This will finish in the next day or so, when we will have another fundraiser along the same lines.
Once again our thanks.
Ian Hallett and Bob Yarwood
