Gentle Exercise Group (based on Tai Chi)

CARE 4 A CUPPA MORNING, held in aid of the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

On June 20th the ladies of the Gentle Exercise Group arranged to extend their normal coffee break with a cake and a cuppa for Donna Louise. A number of the ladies baked cakes and brought them along. We asked for donations and made a staggering £81.65. The Hospice has no funding so every little helps this great charity for children in Staffordshire.
