Katharine House Hospice Raffle Prizes
Pat and Dot from the Katharine House Hospice stall would like to thank everyone for their support over the Cropredy weekend, we made a grand total of £5609 for the Hospice (£3500 of that came from raffle tickets).
The lucky winner of the signed guitar was Chris Sutton from the "Bridlington Association Of Ageing Hippies & ex-Pats in search of Loud Music, Lots of Ale or just an X-tremely Ambient Atmosphere"!
All the prizes have been claimed and a big thank you to One Man Band for supplying the guitar, Brian and Vera Rawson for donating the vinyls for signing, Mrs Bridget O'Connor for the beautiful handmade patchwork quilt, all the performers who did the signing and of course Fairport Convention themselves. We hope to do it all again next year. More...
