abf_soldiers_charitySponsored Walk in Bentley Priory Nature Reserve

The Harrow Fundraising Committee of ABF held a super week-end of Sponsored Walks, Afternoon Tea and a BBQ Party on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th September. Sponsored walks took place a Bentley Priory Nature Reserve, one of Harrow’s gems, a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The Afternoon Tea took place on Saturday at Stanmore Baptist Church where guests were treated to home-baked cakes by our chairman Councillor Camilla Bath.

On Sunday, guests were treated to a delicious spread of sweet potato kebabs, aubergine kebabs, rolled smoked salmon, roast chicken, halal chicken and halal lamb with a variety of salads at Stanmore Baptist Church. The dessert table was heaving with a selection of delicious treats – piece de resistance was Aatif Hirji’s chocolate cheesecake!

Guests at the afternoon tea included Harrow East MP Bob Blackman, Deputy Lieutenant John Purnell and his wife Margaret as well as Nahid Boethe and friends from Harrow Rotary. The lunch was supported by ABF Middlesex Chairman Diana Hart, her husband and others. Our thanks to all our volunteers who helped make the week-end a real success.

Philip Voke said: “Great fun day, delicious food, (cheesecake especially!), I enjoyed meeting with and chatting to so many people in support of a worthy cause”.

Bob Blackman MP said: “I am pleased to support the tremendous work of this invaluable charity. It is always a pleasure to work with the wider community”.
