Thank you to Malcom from "Sport in mind" and Thatcham Table Tennis Club, for very kindly giving our young residents free entry and instruction each week ... They love it !
Last week John and Patsy attended the Mayor of Thatcham's civic reception and were presented with a cheque for £1,617.50! Ellen Crumly, (Mayor of Thatcham) has raised this over her past year via raffles, donations and at events - this amount will also be match funded by The Good Exchange!
