On 23rd March a coffee morning was held in Fairplace Church raising £445.00 for Hospiscare. Hospiscare is a local hospice charity supporting adults living in Exeter, Mid or East Devon with any type of terminal illness.
The morning was open to anyone from the local community to attend and an amazing array of homemade treats including lemon drizzle cake, cherry cake, fruit tea loaf and carrot cake were made to raise funds. There was also a raffle with prizes donated by the branch, members of the church and the general public including a flower arrangement by Jane Redstone.
The Okehampton team served tea, gave out cakes and helped behind stalls. Gatherings such as this are an opportunity for the local community to put names to the faces of the branch team they wave to when walking past in a relaxed and informal setting.
