The house-to-house collection in Ashwellthorpe has now finished, so many thanks to all of you who have contributed to this Appeal this year; there were six volunteers involved in these house-to-house visits – without them, there would be no collection. Collecting tins were also placed in the King’s Head and the White Horse Public Houses and, again, thanks to mine hosts for collecting. The total amount raised will be posted on this page as soon as it is known.
