Hawk & Owl Trust – Tea Party

As you can see we managed to sit and eat outside at ‘Pam’s Tea  Party’ in aid of the Hawk & Owl Trust. We raised enough to keep the two Owl boxes going for another year, with the extra cash being sent as a donation for the Hawk & Owl Trust funds. It was lovely to welcome Julie Stickels to the event and we are hoping to see her a lot more often! Thank you to President Kelly for hosting the event and to everyone who brought food and raffle prizes.
