Maidstone's Moya Sparrowhawk makes welcome return to fund raising

Tuesday 13th August 2019

FRIENDS rallied to help Maidstone widow Moya Sparrowhawk make a welcome return to fund raising.

The Country Fayre was her first event since 2016, following the sudden death of her partner Martyn Sparrowhawk, with a heart condition.

Moya, who says she has found her feet and her motivation to start fund raising again raised £1,200 for her new group The Heavenly Hearts.

Dozens of friends supported Moya - popular for her strawberry teas in support of breast cancer care - as did Maidstone Mayor and her local MP.

This time, she says, she is raising money for the British Heart Foundation – for obvious reasons.

The fayre at Fant Community Hall, which included market stalls selling produce from hand-made baby clothes to quince jelly and flapjacks, will be the first of many, promises Moya.
