The Society for Poole held their Christmas event this week which was attended by 100 members and their guests. The party itself raised £100 for charity and during the event Mike Pearce, Chairman of the Society, was also pleased to hand over a further cheque for £100 to Maria Gundmann of the Dorset Blind Association. The money was raised at the Society’s annual lunch in November.
