What we have done

What we have done, where we have been and who has helped us –
League of Friends events and activities during 2012.


Daffodil Day: Mr & Mrs Alan Witherby again welcomed us to their Beautiful Gardens at Rydal Mount, Wissett, on a chilly day in April 2012, where we raised a superb £615 for our funds.
