Over £1,600 was raised for St Lawrence's Church, Ecchinswell from a Ladies Charity Tennis Morning & Lunch.
"I congratulate Gabrielle Burn and her team on organising this event, in which some 80 tennis players took part. Matches were played on local courts and assessors identified the winners. Sponsors generously gave prizes for a raffle and the whole team raised over £1,600 - £300 more than last year"
The Rev David Bartholomew accepted the cash and thanked Gabrielle, those whose courts were used and the ladies who prepared the lunch for their work in raising the funds which were urgently needed.
Music during the lunch was provided by Fat Chance - a local group
