Thank You To Tockenham Fete


     Tockenham Fete was held on 14 July and as ever it was a wonderful afternoon with loads of entertainment, fun, food and sunshine.  SMASH was the Fete’s chosen charity and  we were  delighted to receive a donation of £600. SMASH was advertised in the brochure and Anna, a Friend of Smash was on hand to talk about Mentors and  Memory Makers  and the wonderful work they do. A big “THANK YOU”  to the Tockenham Fete Committee for choosing to support SMASH.
