The Coffee Morning raised a further £574 which was divided between the three charities, each getting a further £191.  The total amount therefore that each charity received this year was £1241.

Dippers at the Peel New Year Dip

waves The Peel Dip is an organised event for three specific charities, although it is apparent that some 'dippers' are using the event to raise money for other charities. Could the organisers ask that those taking part please support the three charities mentioned.
