Wilmslow Wells for Africa held another hugely successful souperday at at Wilmslow Methodist Church on Saturday, 2nd March.
Over 170 people turned out to enjoy the homemade soup and bread, meaning it was a very busy event.
The cake stall was laden with an impressive display thanks to Fulshaw WI's helping the ever popular event to raise £1,464
Jenny Gibbs, Chair of Wilmslow Wells said "Thank you to everyone who supported us either on the day or before or both. Support comes in many forms - by contributions of gifts, publicity, manning stalls or coming to enjoy the soup and cakes. The wonderful result is not the result of the work of an individual but of a team of people.
"This sizeable sum will be put to good use and will transform many lives. Thank you for enabling us to fund more projects."
