Mike Fenton, President of Lytham St Annes Men’s Forum presents a cheque for £471-50 to Margaret Gregory of the Marie Curie, Lytham St Annes Fundraising Group
Lytham St Annes Men’s Forum held their annual charity fund-raising coffee morning in the Dawson Hall at the White Church on 15th February.
The current season’s President of the Forum, Mike Fenton, who is also a member of the White Church, had picked Marie Curie UK as the charity to support this year.
The event was well attended, and the Forum were able to make a donation of £471.50 to the Marie Curie Lytham St Annes Fundraising Group.
Members of the White Church supported the event, including a team from the Outreach group who provided the refreshments.
The coffee morning was opened by the Mayor of Fylde, Councillor Peter Collins who attended with the Mayoress, Mrs Caroline Collins. They very much entered into the spirit of the occasion and helped with the raffle.
Lucy Styles, the Marie Curie area fundraising manager delivered a short talk about the work of Marie Curie UK.
In addition, Beth True ran her own stall at the coffee morning, for the local Marie Curie fundraising group, which made an additional £49.75.
