Air Ambulance Charity Buffet Supper

The evening at Chef&Spice was a great success: over 130 people attended and £1784 was raised, all through the efforts of Ruth and Anthony Richards. People from several different groups were there – not only Leicester Ramblers but large contingents from Oadby Hill Walking Club, Mountsorrel Ladies and TR Register group. A representative from the Air Ambulance was there to accept the cheque for cash raised from Chef&Spice and the raffle.

A huge thank you to everyone for making the evening such a success.
