In Anthony's Memory
Charity lunches at the Village Hall on Sundays are becoming a part of the scene in Denton. Good food, good company and raising money for a good cause. What more could one want?
The latest on January 25th was extra special as it was held in memory of Anthony Hill who had died so tragically eighteen months ago. It’s purpose was to raise money for a Heart Incident Monitor to be used by the Harleston Surgery. These new devices are an invaluable tool in checking people with potential heart conditions helping the doctors to decide what treatment is needed.
More that 130 people sat down to an excellent lunch in the Hall and raised more than £1,300. This exceeded everyone’s expectations and may be enough to purchase two monitors.
Speaking at the end of the meal, Peter Hill, Anthony’s father, thanked the people who had organised the event and everybody who had contributed. As he said, the large turnout reflected the fond regard with which the whole community remembered Anthony.
