The Broadway Ladies Group are also having their annual coffee morning in support of local charities, and this takes place on Saturday 18th May from 10am until 12 noon at Broadway Methodist Church Hall. This year the ladies are raising funds for “Daft as a Brush” – a charity which helps cancer patients in the North East by providing free transport to and from their hospital appointments – and “The Grafters Club”, which offers ongoing support to children who have suffered burns injuries and their families. Last year the coffee morning raised over £1,400 for Percy Hedley Schools.
