CHIDEOCK girls, Dushka and Hetty, together with their friend Elizabeth, have raised £53 so far for the Syrian refugee appeal by baking and selling cakes.
The girls have set up their stall on the roadside in North Road, Chideock, for the past few Sundays, catching passing trade from walkers and churchgoers, and getting absolutely soaked by the rain on at least one occasion.
They’d love it if you could support their fundraising by buying a cake or five, or a few cooking apples.
The Chideock Branch of Weldmar Hospicecare Trust appeal is hosting a coffee morning, Thursday, October 31 from 10am until midday in the village hall.
A chance to get those Christmas cards early and support the hospice.
A big thank you to everyone who helped and supported the Weldmar Real Dorset evening. Everyone who came along had a super evening with really great Dorset food and £2,000 was raised for the Weldmar Hospice.
