The last lunch of the season, hosted by Lesley Yoffee for the "Ottery HELP Scheme" raised the magnificent total of £564! This was a truly splendid amount, for which Lesley and her helpers are to be congratulate for all the hard work involved. Thanks must also go to all the contributors of the soups. I believe we had eight different varieties, so thank goodness for slow cookers - the stov in the Village Hall only has four rings!

Our final total for this 2014-15 winter season has raised the large sum of £2061. £1772 has been donated to various local charities, whilst £289 was given to Escot Church.

Our grateful thanks to everyone who has supported us, and we hope to see you again in the autumn.
