Pink was the theme of the anniversary coffee morning in Congresbury Methodist Hall, celebrating 10 years since Charlton Farm Children’s Hospice at Wraxall was opened, and 25 years since the first children’s hospice in the south west was established in Barnstable.
Every seat was taken at the attractive tables, as over 50 supporters, of all ages, participated in tasting the delicious cakes, made by Pam Stewart and delightfully decorated with pink pigs.

Twelve year old Lily, who cut the cake when Charlton Farm was opened, cut the 10 year one, and eight year old Grace Stewart did the honours for the second cake.
There was brisk trade for the colourful plants, donated by Middlecombe Nursery, the tombola, and the cakes, jams and jellies, made by local cooks.
Local fund-raiser Jackie Hampson thanked everyone for their continued support, and the success of the morning’s event, which raised £534.
