A coffee morning at Bourne Almshouses raised £500 for charity.

Sue and Roy Walton, almshouse wardens, who organise the events, are pleased to announce that the coffee morning held at Bourne alms-houses on Saturday, August 13, raised more than £500 for charity Medical Detection Dogs.

Medical Detection Dogs train dogs to detect the signs of disease by changes in an individual’s body odour. This was Sue and Roy’s 11th year running the coffee morning/garden fete and this year will be their last.

They said: “We’re so pleased to have raised over £10,000 for different charities over the years and it’s great to have raised so much this year for the Medical Detection Dogs. We’re so grateful to all those who have given their time and energy in helping on the day, as well as to all the businesses which made donations.”
