Dear CRAG supporters
Thanks to you, our pop-up cafés raised a total of £2,500 for Calais!

We were so pleased to see so many of you over the last couple of weekends.

Hilary Barber, who organised the events so brilliantly, writes: 

A very big thank you to all those who supported us in our CRAG cafés on Saturday and Sunday. 

There are so many people to thank but let me begin by thanking all the wonderful people who cooked, served, washed up, made cakes, lent us spoons, and decorated the hall and tables with lovely garden flowers and bunting. 

We have received lots of lovely feedback and the only suggested improvement was that we should do it more often!

Thank you to the Artweeks artists, Charlbury Museum and plant sale enthusiasts …we worked well together and the day was a great success.

We raised in excess of £2,500 in total and this will go to the charity Care4Calais who help clothe, feed and protect the vulnerable refugees in Calais and beyond.

Many thanks to all.
