A racing certainty of a good night at Marham Village Hall




After an interactive race night was held at Marham Village Hall on Saturday, a total of £1,280 has been raised to split between four charities at £300 each.

The charities which will benefit from the race night are the Norfolk Hospice Tapping House, Swaffham and Litcham Home Hospice, Queen Elizabeth Hospital cancer care and improvements to Marham Village Hall.

Organiser Tina Hawkins said the night was held in honour of Pam Weal, who died in November.

She had chosen the four charities and had been involved in raising money for the village hall so that a disabled ramp and defibrillator could be purchased.

Mrs Hawkins said the ramp was installed almost a year ago and has made a “huge difference” when helping elderly people and those with prams gain access to the hall.

With the hall dating back to the 1800s, there is also a need to now fundraise for a disabled toilet.

“Pam worked tirelessly alongside the team to ensure each event was a success and could always be found helping out in the kitchen at events,” said Mrs Hawkins.

A raffle was also held on the night with a luxury champagne hamper, wines and chocolates on offer.

The race night consisted of 10 races, all of which were sponsored by local businesses at £25 per race.

Among those sponsoring the races were borough councillor Mike Howland, Marham Cakes, Tina and Dave Hawkins’ Tot’s 2 Teens, and Morelec Electrical.

There were 75 people in attendance for the event in total with each guest paying a £2 entrance fee.
