On Thursday 19 May Milverton Bridge Group held a Whist Drive in the Victoria Rooms.
The event raised a whopping £492 for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal. This amount will be matched by the Bridge Group from their funds by adding a further £250 to the DEC Appeal and giving £250 to Wiveliscombe Welcomes Refugees. WWR is formally registered to Taunton Welcomes Refugees, Charity No: 1183921.
The Whist Drive was attended by 36 people, most of whom had never played Whist before. The event was such a success and so well received that the Bridge Group has decided to hold regular Whist Drives in the Victoria Rooms in January, May and September.
