Biscoff Cheesecake, Brownies and Bakewell Tarts!

Thursday, April 14th 2022

Biscoff cheesecake, brownies and Bakewell tarts were just some of the delicious home baking on offer today at the Coffee Morning in Richmond Town Hall. A team of volunteers arrived at 8:30am to set up the hall ready for the morning to help raise vital funds for the reserve.

There was much work beforehand and special thanks go to Elizabeth (the First) and Elizabeth (the Second) for taking time yesterday to prepare everything, there is a lot to pack from raffle tickets and prizes to teabags and displays. The doors opened at 9:00am and after a slow start business began to pick up!

The raffle and tombola were very popular, thank you to all who kindly donated prizes for these.

As usual, the kitchen was a hive of activity with making refreshments and the all important job of washing and drying up!

In total £219.60 was raised, this will make a significant difference to the reserve. Our sincere thanks to everyone who made it possible from baking goods, donating prizes, assisting on the day to supporting the event by coming along, your contribution is appreciated! Finally, thanks to the volunteers who stayed back at the reserve to meet and greet visitors, replace boardwalk and carry out practical conservation tasks too!
