Taunton Moose International Moose members in Taunton have had another successful year in our endeavours to promote our aim of caring and sharing in our local community and at a national level. We have held various fund raising events and, while having fun, have also, thanks to all the support we have received at our events, raised money for local groups. The picture was taken at our AGM at the end of March when the men and ladies of Moose donated money £4000 to local groups. The picture shows the representatives of the groups who received the money.
