When CLCGB Longridge OIC Janet Redding asked the JTC/Seniors if they wanted to attend the Remembrance Day parade in London they jumped at the chance, even when told they would have to fundraise. In 2019 we had already made £500 with an afternoon tea for 70 people (pictured below with the delicious desserts) followed by a sleepover in church for a London trip however that year no tickets for the parade were allocated.
Then a pandemic hit!
A sponsored walk was arranged by Laura Sailsbury, a cake raffle by Olivia Stewart which in total raised a grand total of £930 adding the Afternoon tea and a grant from the local parish council we surpassed our target.
Thanks to their hard work we have managed to subsidise a two-night stay in London making it affordable for all the 18 including leaders attending and something for the Martins and Yteam too! We say a big well done and can't wait to see you at the Remembrance Day Parade later in the year.
