Saundersfoot Connect hosted a very successful coffee morning on Friday October 8, raising an impressive £1,070 for Macmillan.

It was held in the beautiful lounge at St Bride’s Spa Hotel who also donated all the coffee for the morning. Cakes were supplied by the community who baked some tasty treats.

The raffle prizes were many and varied – lots donated by those who came along, and a huge number generously donated by local businesses. Over £500 of the total was raised on the raffle alone.

Organiser, Ladan Harper, said: “We were blown away by the number of beautiful cakes that were brought along, and the many lovely prizes donated by guests and local businesses. We were very busy all morning, with over 100 people attending.”

One of the guests said: “It was so lovely to come out and meet people at an event - it’s the first time I’ve done something this social in 18 months.”

Another added: “I’ve just moved to the area, so it was great to be able to say ‘hello’ to some new friends and make connections with people I’ve only met online so far.”

Now a monthly Saundersfoot Coffee & Connect is on the cards after many people commented how lovely it was to meet up and expressed an interest in maybe doing something like this more often.
