Our last soup lunch of the season raised over £600 for the Ottery Help Scheme. It was a full house, so thank you to everyone who contributed so generously to Lesley's lunch.

The total for the 6 month season was £2,33o, of which £350 was donated to the Church Boiler Fund. Work on this project should begin in May.

This has been a very successful season for all of us, and especial thanks have to go to our ladies who continue to be inspired to make the wonderful variety of soups and desserts for which they claim no expenses. We rarely have any leftovers. We hope to start up again in October. Have an enjoyable summer and once again thank you.
