Carolyn Organises Charity Soup Kitchen

rett-syndromeCarolyn Molyneux from Delegate Office and Conference Services in Henley has been asked by her friend Helen whose daughter suffers from Rett Syndrome to help raise money for research into this devastating condition.  Helen was 40 this year and has asked 40 friends to each to hold an event so Carolyn came up with the idea of a Soup Kitchen event.  She said, “I am  friend 22 and I would like to raise  at least £1000 for this very worthwhile charity.”

Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that strikes little girls around the time of their first birthday and affects nearly every aspect of these girls’ lives; taking away their ability to walk, talk and use their hands. Many girls have problems with breathing and eating. Many have seizures.

The Soup Kitchen is on Saturday 2 November between 12-2pm in the Town Hall.  Entrance is £5 and includes soup, Bread, tea/coffee.  Other attractions include a tombola, raffle, craft and card stalls, cake stall, Tupperware stall, Friendtex Clothes and Guess the Weight of ‘Smartie’ the Pony.

Tickets can be bought on the day or in advance from Delegate’s office at 30 Hart Street.
