On Mayfair day 3 brave women from the Black Horse Inn had their heads shaved for 2 worthy charities. They aimed to raise £5,000 to be shared equally between the Great Torrington Cavaliers and Macmillan Cancer Support.

Before our monthly meeting on Thursday 7th June, Bev, Jane and Payton presented us with a cheque for £5307 being half of the £10,614 raised. What an amazing result and Thank you so much for the donation, we are all very proud of you.
