    During an enjoyable and busy day, we were all kept well supplied with refreshments by a hardworking team of family members. Thanks to their hard work we raised more than £150 for Martin House Hospice on the day - a huge thank you to them and all who donated. Sam Conroy's lunchtime chilli went down a storm, raising funds for his upcoming Tanzania Outlook Expedition. Sam would like to pass on his thanks to all those who kindly donated.
