SOUTH WOOTTON: Cards are bridge to hospice cash
Dozens of bridge players beat the freeze to help raise hundreds of pounds for the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House as they battled for a Lynn News-sponsored trophy.
A total of 48 players met at the South Wootton village hall last Wednesday, with Keith Pearce and Richard Ankin sharing the shield with Ann and Phil Aelberry.
The afternoon raised a total of £500 for the hospice, and organiser Sylvia Savage, who is also an ambassador for the charity, thanked all the players, as well as supporters who provided a wide range of refreshments during the afternoon.
She said: “It was a super day and a great result for the charity,”
She added that the cash came at a vital time for the hospice, with work on a new purpose-built facility at Hillington expected to start later this year: “Now is the time for everyone to support the hospice, and do all we can to boost the funds for the running costs.”
