Locals win Charity Bridge tournament
Monday 12th November 2012
On Sunday 11th November, a beautiful sunlit afternoon saw the arrival of over forty people to attend a charity rubber bridge tournament in Lerryn Memorial Hall, organised by Michael and Marie Farey.
The event included a delicious tea, a raffle and sale of bric a brac. Everyone agreed that it was a very enjoyable afternoon- even those who were not dealt the most favourable hands of cards.
As well as Michael and Marie, thanks are due to Mike and Sylvia Smith of Liskeard Bridge Club ( for sale of tickets, loan of bridge tables and equipement). Also for organising the collection and sale of bric a brac, Joan and Malcolm Thomas from Liskeard and Barry and Nance Holden from Looe Bridge Club for sales of tickets and directing the tournament.
Some bridge players who were unable to attend, kindly made donations to the charity. Food was donated by local supermarkets and Lerryn River Sores. Blakes Bakeries generously donated 50 pasties- these proved very popular both for eating on the afternoon and for purchasing to take home for supper later!
Thanks to all those from Lerryn and the surrouding area who gave their time and effort to making cakes, flans, sandwiches and other delious morsels, not to mention setting up the hall, selling raffle tickets, serving tea and washing up and clearing up after the event.
The prize for the top bridge score was won by.... Michael Farey and Anne Fenwick! Congratulations to the pair of them ( and thanks to Anne for all her help ).
Proceeds from the sale of enrty tickets, raffle tickets, table sale and donations resulted in a cheque for £530.00 being sent the the chosen charity. As befits Remembrance Sunday, this was " Help for Heroes"
