Colaton Raleigh coffee morning raises funds for Storybook Dads

PUBLISHED: 16:00 03 June 2018


A coffee morning held in Colaton Raleigh has raised vital funds for a charity looking to help maintain a connection between imprisoned parents and their children.

The village’s focus club raised more than £800 for Storybook Dads, which is its chosen charity for 2018.

The organisation encourages imprisoned parents to create a bedtime story on a disc as a way of maintaining a connection with their children.

A spokesman for the club thanked everyone who supported the ‘very happy’ event.

The club has arranged an extra meeting for June, with Maggy Duffy giving a talk entitled ‘Devon Historical and Hysterical – Songs and Tales of Past Devon Life’.

She was due to give the talk in March, but it was postponed due to snow .

The talk will now take place at the village hall from 7.30pm on Monday, June 18.

Visitors are welcome and non-members will be charged £2 entry.
