Charity event held in Aldeburgh raises over £2000 for The Brain Tumour Charity
Aldeburgh Baptist Chapel hosted a special day of fundraising for Brain Tumour Day.
The event, held in the chapel on High Street attracted some high profile helpers including the Mayor of Aldeburgh Jocelyn Bond as well as the town’s town crier Charles Walker.
Felicity Hoare who helped to organise the event said: “It was a great success!
“So thanks to our amazing cake makers, the WI, the churches and other friends, and all the amazing tombola prizes we were given.
“The day alone made well over £2,000 and when the collecting boxes are in, then it will be much more.”

The event benefitted from music from the 2 Garry’s, from the Vulcan Pub group of musicians, who played and collected courtyard outside the Chapel.
Ms Hoare added: “Should anyone not have managed to get there but still would like to donate, please do so by visiting the Brain Tumour Charity site.”
