TENBY TODAY: MANORBIER Newton Fundraisers were thrilled with the fantastic support at their annual soup and pudding lunch on Saturday.

The event in Lamphey Village Hall raised £900 for three local charities. The Trussell Trust Pembrokeshire Food Bank, Sandy Bear Children’s Bereavement Charity and Homeless Pembrokeshire each were given £300. 

Two hours of hectic activity in the kitchen and the hall accompanied preparations for the event. All the tables were beautifully laid and decorated with spring floral arrangements. Raffle prizes included fabulous hampers made from donated goods . 

Numbers were down, probably because of the awful weather and the road closure signs in Lamphey. Nevertheless, visitors from all over the county relaxed over their lunch, chatting with old friends and making new ones.

The food was of a very high standard, all homemade with love and care. Along with three flavours of soup, there was a tempting array of desserts both hot and cold, making the decisions quite difficult . At least you could have a takeaway as well!  

The organisers would like to thank everyone for supporting this event and consequently important local charities. They also appreciate all the extra help from our supportive friends for kitchen skills, washing up, clearing tables, waitressing, raffle and food donations and for taking care of the finances. 

Each of the charities have a website if you would like further information about their aims and activities.
