Dear Guy,


On behalf of our President, Bob Hills and our members, I am writing to thank you for your help with our Christmas Day Dinner and entertainment last week. All reports we have from the guests and our helpers who in total were over 100, was how much they enjoyed both the Dinner and the Bingo afterwards, and the ‘goody bags’ we gave our guests on leaving.

Guy, we are truly grateful to WCT for providing the Bustler, and particularly to Richard Shaw as your volunteer driver once again, helping those guests with wheelchairs or walking aids, who without your Bustler would have been unable to attend the festivities and Dinner we provided at Moorcroft, and thus would have been on their own instead.

I hand delivered a thank you letter to Richard last week, and spoke to him and his family, and told them how much we appreciated their help. We were successful in getting a short ‘thank you letter’ in last week’s News and Mail, under the heading “A most enjoyable Christmas Lunch”, but inadvertently it showed Richard as Steve Shaw. My sincere apologies to Richard for that, but nothing I can do after the event. Please could you give Richard a copy of this letter so he has our apologies for the wrong first name being included.

Our sincere thanks for your help in keeping this annual event going this Christmas, which has now been running for over 30 years, providing company and entertainment for so many local people who otherwise would be on their own on Christmas Day

With very best wishes from Jacquie and me for a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year to you and your family,

Yours sincerely,

Roger Chamberlain.
