Hundreds of pounds were raised for the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House during a coffee morning held by a West Norfolk Women’s Institute group at the weekend.

Today marks the centenary of the formation of the movement and, while gearing up for their own celebrations, members of the Watlington WI found time to support the work of the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House.

The group held a coffee morning at the village hall on Saturday, which raised around £850 for the cause.

Treasurer Brenda Redfern, pictured above right, said: “We did quite well. We were pleased with the outcome.

“It’s the third one we’ve done and they have all been quite successful.”

Many members of the group, which meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the village hall, attended a garden party organised by their counterparts from the Pentney and Narborough WI this afternoon to mark the exact date of the anniversary.
