Coffee and £19,000 to go …

CRY CP book sale May 2014

Unbowed under-cover: from left to right, Claire with helpers Rob Sanders, Jo Tucker, Martin Hale, Andy Howells, Elin Hale, Chris Tucker and Sue Howells.

With six months to go in Tom’s Fund’s attempt to raise £100,000 to provide more free heart screenings for young people, we are closing in on our target.

After all the brilliant recent support, we are now into the ‘teens’ and need around £19,000 to make the £100k that we’d love to mark the year during which Tom would have been 21.

For my part, rain failed to dampen our spirits – as we used to write in my old newspaper days – when we held our most recent book sale.

With the help of a gazebo belonging to Rob and Caro Sanders and lots of volunteers we managed to raise £870 at the event outside Munsons cafe in South Ealing.

A generous donation from Munsons took us over the £80,000 mark – all of which will go towards CRY’s heart screenings and research.

So hugest thanks once again to Mario and the baristas, customers and helpers who made it such a successful day.
