Hi Issy and everyone else.
Can I just say that I have used easyfundraising at the ski club, where I used to be a member. It really is as easy as it looks and we raised hundreds of pounds.
You get a donation for the Newspaper, for doing something you are going to do anyway and without it costing you a bean!! I urge everyone to sign up.
Every little helps!

We will, again, be having a stall at this year’s Rose Fair – on Saturday 2 July. So, we will be looking for volunteers to do a 2-hour stint on the stall, as well as helping setting up and clearing.
We will, again, be having a bric-a-brac stall, together with our ‘alternative’ raffle, and would be grateful if you could start looking for items for the stall. You can leave them at Peckover, or with one of the Committee members.
Thanking you all in advance.
Today, Thursday 4 February 2016, Ann Shippey, Chairman and Isobel Shippey, Secretary, attended the Gorefield Bowls Club Luncheon at The West End Restaurant in Wisbech as monies raised by the raffle was to be donated to the Wisbech & District Talking Newspaper. A record breaking £275 was raised!
Isobel gave a short talk about the history of the Talking Newspaper and what we do now, as well as putting an appeal out for more volunteers, as we are currently looking for more people to help with the copying and dispatching of our recordings.
