70 people sat down to enjoy
The 8th Annual
Samuel Lee Charity
This event was first held in 2008 to celebrate the Tercentenary of the death of the seventeenth century Ranger of Geddington Chase, Samuel Lee, benefactor to the poor of Geddington.
Guests enjoyed a 3-course lunch and were able to listen to local historian, Melvyn Hopkins, who reminisced on his years of research into the history of Geddington and many of its residents and activities.
The Lunch is a major fund-raising event for the Charity and the Trustees would like to say thank you to those guests who brought gifts for the Raffle table, and to those who donated items for the Auction: both activities raising useful funds for the Charity.
An extra boost was made to the Charity, when Borough Councillor, Jonathan Bullock, announced that he was donating £400 to the Charity from his Borough Community Fund and handed the cheque to Charity Chairman, John Sutton C.B.E.
