Dame Judi a sellout, so buy raffle tickets now – and win great prizes!
‘An audience with Dame Judi Dench’ at the Mill at Sonning for Dunsden Village Hall sold out within 24 hours of going public, but you can still buy raffle tickets to support Dunsden Village Hall. Work continues to transform the Victorian building into a community centre for the 21st century and funding is badly needed as are volunteers to join the team. There are some fabulous prizes in the raffle, including a magnum of champagne, dinner and a night’s stay for two at the French Horn, a night’s stay at the Coppa Club for two, swim and dinner for two at the new Thames Lido, and a ride on a combine harvester – all thanks to generous local donors. Tickets will soon at Binfield Heath Stores, the Shoulder of Mutton in Playhatch and the Flowing Spring. Dunsden Village hall is a registered charity.
