UPCC Newsletter – Autumn 2009
Peter Moore thanked Wai Yee Hong in his quarterly newsletter for the Under Privileged Children’s Charity (UPCC), and showed Allan Tan and Raymond Chow meeting with Terry Waite at their charity garden party.
The next event in our calendar was the Summer Cocktail Party at The Merchant Venturers Hall on 24 July.
We were lucky to have a lovely sunny evening and were able to enjoy the beautiful gardens and terrace where drinks and canapés were served. This was a very successful occasion and a photographer was there to capture the event.
Our very good friends Raymond & Allison Chow and Allan & Sandie Tan joined the party and generously presented a cheque for £1,000 to our patron Terry Waite. Allan and Raymond are joint owners of the Wai Yee Hong Chinese Supermarket in Eastville and to make the most of current trends, they hit on the idea of asking their customers for 5p for any plastic bags needed, all monies collected being donated to UPCC.
The photo shows them handing Terry a copy of the thermometer which was displayed in the shop charting how much had been raised. It is amazing to think that such small amounts can reach such a splendid target.
