Donation to the Stratford Hospital

On Thursday evening at the Art Society monthly meeting, Lila Morgan and Jenny Farrell, fundraisers for Friends of Stratford Hospital, received a cheque and thanked Society members for their generosity.
Michael Culverwell, President, said “we were delighted that our cards were so popular and hope to repeat the competition next year to continue our fundraising efforts for this very important facility.
