Sherborne: Pictures from Hearts from Haiti

FIRST planned as a simple West Dorset coffee morning, Hearts for Haiti ended up as a five-and-a-half hour extravaganza that raised about £4,000 for shelters for eathquake victims.

“Amazing, freezing, and very funny” was the concise and considered verdict on the day given by Jane Read, of Pinks Organics of Hermitage, who organised the event with Charlotte Dick Read, of Reads Coffee, which is based between Sherborne and Thornford.

Cash raised will go to Oxfam ands Shelter Box. “If anybody wants to add to the total, please let me know!” Jane continued.

If you missed it, here is a taste of what you missed. And if you went along, well, let’s hope these pictures serve as a nice reminder of an inspiring day.
