As part of our Charity of the Year fundraising on Saturday 23 January we held our Charity Coffee Morning at the Victory Hall in Dalston. We were delighted to see so many people come out to support our Charities of the Year Eden Valley Hospice and Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland and join us for a cup of tea or coffee and some of the delicious homemade cakes and goodies we had on offer.
The morning was bright and fresh outside and the hall offered a nice refuge from the cold along with a wide selection of sweet treats which were worth breaking the January diets for, we were even joined by a couple who had walked all the way from Carlisle – who certainly deserved their cakes!
At David Allen we believe in giving back to our local community and our Charity of the Year fundraising enables us to support two wonderful worthwhile causes which are close to many of our hearts. We are lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers who gave their time to either help bake some of the delicious cakes, tray bakes and scones we had on offer, or help to serve the teas and coffees on Saturday. We are also very proud to live in such a generous community and we would like to thank everyone who came out to support our event which helped us to raise just under £300 to be added to our fundraising total!
