When Duncan and Marie Hacking wanted to raise money for Rosemere Cancer Foundation, following Duncan's recent successful treatment at the Rosemere centre at Preston, The Read and Simonstone Community Cafe hosted an event at their weekly cafe in the Constitutional Club in Read.

On the day there was a raffle , Rosemere's Christmas cards were sold and there was a very enjoyable quiz. An amazing £614.50 was raised by a charity donation from the Community Cafe and one from Duncan and Marie, and also from the events of the day.
