SWANAGE Quakers would like to thank all those people who came along to our MacMillan Fundraising Coffee and Poetry Event held at the Floribunda Tea Lounge on 23 September.

It was extremely well attended with a wonderful atmosphere which was generated by the wide range of poems on the theme of Exits & Entrances, about the beginnings and endings of life.

These poems reflected the work given tirelessly by MacMillan Nurses as they go about supporting individuals and families during life changing illnesses and conditions which so often have poor or terminal prognoses.

Swanage Quakers were delighted to have raised £230 for MacMillan Nurses, so thank you again for all your support and with a special thank you to Sarah at Floribunda for the lovely cakes and coffee she made for the occasion.
