We just wanted to share with you this mail from Maria at Sara Lee Trust
Dear Justine and the Rye Ukulele Experiment
I wanted to email to thank you all for giving up your time to play at our Christmas Fair on Saturday- you add such a wonderful atmosphere to the day so please pass on our grateful thanks to all the group, we are so grateful for your support.
We had a very successful day and have raised £2,665 to date from the Fair and Raffle which will allow us to provide essential care and support to many people across Hastings and Rother who are affected by cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
We are thrilled with the amount raised and thank you once again for everything you do to help and support us.
With very best wishes, Maria
