Billie Burnett, a Tavistock Friends of the Children’s Hospice group member, welcomed Andrea and David Burch to the recent coffee morning, held to raise funds for the charity.

Their particular stall, laden with home made jams, preserves, cakes, soft toys, and Christmas decorations — all donated to the charity — made an enormous contribution to the £600 raised from the kind visitors and donors to support the work of the charity.
